Garden Waste Collection Service

Sign up for our new online service for £65

This collection service will help you compost your garden waste. The Garden Waste service has an annual renewal, each customer will have an anniversary date, meaning whenever in the year you join the service, you will receive a year's worth of collections.

You can have as many bins as you want. Every additional bin will cost £55. You pay a one-off fee for a full year service. We will not charge you for delivering the bin or, should you ever wish to cancel, charge you for collecting the bin*.

Information

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 wheeled 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.

If you have any questions please email us at garden.waste@malvernhills.gov.uk.

Please ensure that the wheeled bin is presented by 7am on your collection day. The bin will be collected between 7am and 5pm. Therefore, any missed collections should not be reported until after 5pm.

There is a safe working weight limit for both the garden waste bin and the bin lift mechanism on the freighter of 100kg. Please ensure that as much soil as possible has been removed from weeds, turf, etc before placing them in the bin. The driver may refuse to lift a bin if it is too heavy.
