Green bin - garden and food waste

Why charge for my garden waste collection service?

We haven't received any income from the original green bin service provided free at the point of use. With changes to how councils are funded, we have had to find new sources of income or reduce the services we provide.

We don't have to collect garden waste at all, but our collection service allows us to continue to provide a service to residents who want it.

Home composting is the best way to deal with garden waste and, where appropriate, food waste. We hope that the new service will encourage residents to home compost as well as or instead of subscribing.
