Garden waste bin

We want to inform our residents who are subscribed to the chargeable garden waste collection service that renewals for the next service year (2023/24) will open in July, so they don’t need to do anything just yet.

Charge will remain at £25 per bin per year

Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Environment, said: “Renewals for the upcoming service year will open from Monday, July 3, 2023. Please don’t attempt to renew your garden waste collections before this date. The 2023/24 service doesn’t start until Monday, September 4, 2023, and residents will have several weeks to renew ahead of their first collection.

“We’re pleased to once again freeze the cost of the service at £25 per green bin per year, which is less than what many other authorities in England and Wales charge.”

Online payments being turned off shortly

There have been occasions recently where residents have contacted us to say they had mistakenly paid for our current service year (2022/23), without realising it only has a few months left to run.

Residents can still join our 2022/23 service which costs £25 per-bin, but need to be aware that it runs until September 1, 2023, so they will only get around 3.5 months of collections if they join now.

Please don’t be mistaken into thinking you will receive a full 12 months service by joining now. New sign-ups wanting to get a full year will need to wait and join the upcoming 2023/24 service from July to receive their first collection in September.

To avoid any confusion, we’ll be turning off online payments for 2022/23 on Friday, May 26, 2023. Anyone who wants to join after this date will need to call Streetscene on 01978 298989 to make a card payment.
