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 required - (if you order a second/third bin with a different renewal date, your anniversary for both bins will be in the middle of the two dates. e.g. one bin renewed on 01/02/2019 and one bin on 01/06/2019, your renewal date will be 01/04/2019.)
- Every additional bin will cost £60
- One-off fee for a full year service
- No bin delivery charge
Please note: Payments must be made up front and in full, one off collections are not available and we do not offer refunds for cancelled services.
Customers who cancel their service and fail to present the bin for collection may be charged £50.00.
If you have any questions or issues regarding the service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call us on 01684 862490.
Christmas Trees Disposal:
After the festive season is over, Garden Waste customers can cut their (real!) trees up and put them in their brown bins for collection.
Alternatively whole trees can usually be disposed of at the household recycling centres or use the St Richard's Hospice Christmas Tree disposal service, details of which can be found here:
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.

- Convenient and easy to use
