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
The 2013/14 collection service started on Monday
25th February 2013, however you can sign up to the
service at any point in the year and pay a reduced rate
depending on the number of collections that are left in the year
(minimum fee of £30 to cover equipment and administration).
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.

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
£60 per year is because this is what it 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.
