Garden Waste Collection Service
This convenient collection service will help you
compost your garden waste
Home composting is the best way to deal with your garden waste
but when the growing season really gets going you
might need a little extra help.
The garden waste collection service is:
- convenient and easy to use
- saves time and effort
- eco-friendly; composting on your behalf
Subscribing to the garden waste collection service means that
you can put all your compostable garden waste in a special 240
litre brown wheelie bin, including lawn cuttings, hedge
clippings, leaves, dead flowers, old plants and as many weeds as
you can dig up!
Every fortnight we will collect the compostable waste from you,
leaving your garden looking as lovely as you intended it to be.
The 2014/15 collection service starts on Monday
24th February 2014 and costs £70.00 for the
full year service. Exisiting Direct Debit customers will be
charged £65.00. You can pay a reduced fee of £60.00 if you
join from June to August and £40.00 if you join in September or
later. The reduced rate reflects the reduced number of
collections left until the end of the service year.
You can sign up to the service by calling the Worcestershire HUB on
01684 862151 please have your debit or credit card ready
to make payment over the phone.
Please note: Payments must be made upfront
and in full, one off collections are not available and we do

cancel their service and fail to present the bin for
collection may be charged £50.00.

We believe the service offers excellent value for money and
although other Local Authorities offer a similar service for a
lower cost we feel that it is not fair to subsidise the costs
of this service with council tax monies. Many of
our residents will not be able to take advantage of this
service as they do not have a big garden or produce any garden
waste at all. It would not be right to take money away
from other services that everyone benefits
from (such as Street Cleansing) in order to fund a
service which can only benefit a
select few. So, in short, the reason the service costs
£70 per year is because this is what it now costs to operate the
service, the full cost of this service is paid for by those who use
it and you can't get fairer than that. The recent
price increase reflects the increase in operational costs.
