Garden Waste Service – Frequently Asked Questions

1. How much is it to sign up to the service? The annual charge is £40 per green bin, however, if you sign up between 11th January and 28th February 2021, there is an early bird charge of £35 per green bin. To ensure there is no disruption to your service, you will need to sign up by 18th March 2021 to allow time for your permit to be delivered.

2. Is this charge compulsory? No. The service will only be available to residents that register for the service. If you do not register and make the payment, your green bin will not be collected and there will be no charge to you. Therefore, if you do not have a garden or do not want to pay for the collections, you do not need to do anything.

3. Will you take my green bin away if I am not paying for the service? We can arrange to collect your green bin if you decide not to sign up to have your bin emptied, however, we would recommend that you give this a few months to decide after the subscription service is in place. If we do remove your bin and then you decide you would like to sign up for the service, there will be a £42 charge for a new green bin plus the £40 subscription.

4. What should I do with my food waste? You can place up to three food waste caddies for collection on your scheduled garden waste collection day. The food caddies will be available free of charge, on request.

5. Can I put the garden waste in my grey rubbish bin? No. 95% of the waste in the grey bin is taken to an energy from waste facility, they cannot accept garden waste at this plant. If there is garden waste in your grey bin, it will not be emptied. The collections crews will be monitoring bins for hidden garden waste and a thorough check will be made if evidence shows previous contamination.

6. Can I put garden waste in my blue-lidded recycling bin? No. The recycling in the blue-lidded bin is sorted at a materials recycling facility, they cannot accept garden waste at this plant. If there is garden waste in your blue-lidded bin, it will not be emptied. The collection crews will be monitoring bins for hidden garden waste and a thorough check will be made if evidence shows previous contamination.

7. Can I pay monthly or pay for a one-off collection? The annual charge is fixed for one year from 1st April to 31st March. The charge must be paid in full and there is no pro-rata rate available.

8. Can I put additional bags at the side of the bin? No. The charge is per green bin and only bins showing the official permits will be emptied, residents can have as many bins as required.
