Apply for a green bin collection service

Until the scheme comes in to force, collections will remain free - however we would urge those householders who wish to sign up to the service to do so early to avoid missed collections when the scheme begins

  • current free service will cease on 21 January to allow for crew training
  • to ensure you receive collections from the 4 February - sign up by 18 January

How the service will work

The service will cost £40 per bin for each year from February to January (apart from a short break during winter). Any green bin subscription taken now will be for a colllection service from February 2019 to January 2020. You can opt-in at any time, but there are no discounts for part-year subscriptions. There are no concessions or discounts for this service.

  • sign up to our service, we will issue you with a sticker for your bin
  • when you receive your sticker, you will need to stick it to the body of your bin at the rear, below the handle
  • this sticker will be unique to you and will match our records
  • we will only empty green bins from February 2019 that display a sticker

I don't want to pay, what now?

If you do not wish to pay for the service, you will need to keep your green bin at home.
