Additional green bins

Additional green bins charging - pricing

Since Tuesday 1 August 2017 an annual fee of £35 a year has been charged for all additional green bins for garden waste.

This fee is reduced to half price - £17.50 for a 6 monthly service from 1st Feb 2018. 

The price returns to £35 from 1st June 2018 payable for the 12 months from 1st August 2018  - 31st July 2019

If you would like additional green bins to be emptied please register online and pay the annual fee per bin.  You are able to order up to 6 additional green bins.

Your first green bin which is provided through our regular service to households is not affected by this charge and should continue to include your garden and food waste combined.

When signing up to the new service there could be a period of up to 14 days where your additional bins aren't collected.  They will only be collected once a sticker is displayed on the additional green bins
