Garden waste bin

The 2021/22 garden waste collection service began on August 30, but if you didn’t get around to signing up and now regret it, please be aware it’s not too late to join.

The service charge has been frozen at £25 per bin and runs from the date you sign up until September 2, 2022, so it’s better to sign up sooner rather than later to get the best value. Simply put, the earlier you join, the more collections you’ll get.

If you want to have your garden waste bin(s) collected you can pay online at


If you sign up now, you can still get around 11 months of collections, whereas if you left it for a further month before signing up, you’d only get 10 months collections for the same price.

It’s better to sign up now and get more collections for your money.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “As we’re now into autumn, with leaves falling from trees and people having dead plants to clear from the summer, we want to remind residents that they can still join the garden waste collection scheme. The service runs until September 2, 2022, so you’re still able to get many months of collections for £25 if you sign up soon. If you now want to join, please head over to and follow the instructions to pay for the service.”

Please pay online if you can

Paying online is by far the easiest and most convenient way to sign up to the service, as you can do it any time you want and it only takes a couple of minutes.

If you’re unable to do this, you can call Streetscene to make a card payment, but please be aware that you’re likely to experience a wait if you do so.

Allow 10 days for your sticker

Residents who sign up for the service will be issued with a new sticker, which will need to be displayed clearly on your bin lid. Please allow at least 10 working days to receive your new sticker pack from the date you sign up.
