How much does it cost?

  • £48 per bin per year to join for the period 1 April 2020 - 31 March 2021. This covers the collection from one garden waste bin.
  • If you need a new or replacement bin there is a one off charge of £30.50;  please note this bin will be delivered within 28 working days of signing up to the scheme
