Garden Waste Service

Don't delay join today and we will take your garden waste away!
The garden waste service is available across the city and is the most convenient way to dispose of garden waste. The annual subscription service runs from February to November and we will provide you with a 240 litre wheelie bin and up to 20 fortnightly collections. It costs just £35 a year (or £33 online) and you can order more than one garden waste service at an additional cost. Please note, we will no longer be offering a half yearly discount.


To sign up for the Garden Waste Collection Service you will be asked to log in to your online account. You can register an online account here, if you don't already have one.

Before clicking the link below, please ensure you:

  • Have an online account showing the correct address
  • Have your debit/credit card details (we do not accept cheques)
  • Select at least one garden waste service, even if you are renewing. We will only deliver additional bins where required
  • Have sufficient space to store the wheelie bin(s)

Important notice: You can still purchase the 2015 Garden Waste Service, but please note that you will only receive the number of collections remaining until the season ends at week ending 27th November 2015. We do not collect garden waste for a 12 week period over the winter months.
