The cost for the 2018 season licence is great value at £39 (around £2 per collection).

You will receive 19 fortnightly collections from mid March until the end of November 2018.

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

The licence covers one garden waste wheelie bin (or the equivalent number of reusable sacks). If you wish to have more you will need to pay the annual subscription fee for each additional bin (or additional sacks). If you wish to share with a neighbour you will need to pay for one licence, registered and collected at one address.

The same licence cost applies to village halls, places of religious worship and charities.

Subscribe before the 31 December 2017 to ensure you receive your licence in time. We will send a confirmation letter specifying your garden waste collection day and start date with your garden waste licence a few weeks before the season starts.

There are no exemptions or concessions and we can't offer refunds.
