How the garden waste subscription service works

We are no longer accepting subscriptions to the 2021 garden waste collection service.

The final collections will take place in the weeks commencing 15 and 22 November before the service finishes for the year.

Subscriptions for 2022 will open in January.


Our garden waste subscription service is available to everyone in the Harrogate district and provides a simple cost-effective way to dispose of your garden waste without having to take it to a household waste recycling centre.

If you would like to receive fortnightly collections of garden waste you need to subscribe to the service and display a garden waste licence.

The quickest way to apply for a licence is by using our online subscription form or alternatively contact our customer service team on 01423 500600 (please have your debit/ credit card details ready).

In 2021 the subscription service will run from mid-March until mid-November and will cost £41 for 19 fortnightly collections.

If you don't already have one we will provide you with a 240-litre wheelie bin (or reusable garden waste sacks if your property has restricted access which will be identified when you register).

You can join at any time throughout the season but you will still be required to pay £41. If you subscribe early you will benefit from the maximum number of collections.
