Green bin - garden and food waste
Additional green bin charges
Pay for the collection of your additional green bin online or by calling 02476376376
Cost of the service
If you have more than one green bin, you will be required to pay an annual collection fee of £40 for each additional green bin. There are no collection costs for the first green bin. Each additional green lid bin will cost £40 each per year, which includes 25 collections per bin, one collection every two weeks, except the two weeks around Christmas and New Year. View green lid bin terms and conditions.
For example, if you have:
- one green bin, you will not be required to pay an annual collection fee
- two green bins, you will pay £40 per year annually
- three green bins, you will pay £80 per year annually
You can order and pay for an additional green bin at any time between 1 June and 31 May. If you have recently paid for an additional green bin on the old charges (before June 2018) this charge will be taken in to account when the first years fee is calculated.
- There are no concessions for this service, including charities and customers receiving benefits
I don't want to pay, what now?
You can either keep your additional unpaid green bin at home or contact us to collect it.
Please note your bin will not be collected if presented at the kerbside alongside your first green bin if you have not paid for the additional service.
Use of additional green bin
You should use your additional green bin for garden waste. You should use your first free green bin for both food and garden waste.
Ordering and paying for the additional green bin service
Call our customer services team to order an additional green bin and pay by debit or credit card. (Our offices are open Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 5.00pm.)
There is no limit to the number of green bins you can order
You can share an additional bin with a neighbour
This is a mutual agreement: one of you must order and pay for the bin. The person who orders and pays for the bin must report a missed collection. We cannot become involved in disputes between neighbours over a shared bin.
You can order a bin for someone else
When you are ordering please specify the address where the green bin is located. All correspondence will be sent to the address from where the green bin collection will be made.
When we collect green waste
We collect the green bins all year round, except for two weeks to allow for crew training. There may be exceptional circumstances where we are unable to collect your bin, e.g. due to bad weather.
Your garden waste must fit in your bin
Your green lid must be firmly closed for collection to take place. Extra bags of garden waste cannot be taken because it is unsafe for the crew to stand at the back of the vehicle to empty out bags. Consider purchasing an additional bin if you regularly have additional waste. You can also take your garden waste to Judkins.
We will replace the bin free of charge due to wear and tear or if we damage the bin.
If you are moving home within the borough of Nuneaton and Bedworth and wish to continue with your additional garden waste bin, you will need to take your green bin with you when you move. You will also need to contact customer services to request a change of address label for the service.
No longer need your additional green lid bin
You can arrange to have your bin collected. There are no refunds after a yearly payment has been made.
Assisted bin collection
If you are on the assisted bin collection list, this will still apply to the additional green bin service.
Please note that the additional bin fee is for collection and the bin remains the property of the Council.
