Garden waste collections - sign up and pay

Garden waste leafletFrom 5 June 2017, a charge will be introduced for the collection of garden waste. You will need to sign up and pay to receive the garden waste collection service. If you sign up before 15 May 2017 there will be no interruption to your service.

It will cost £30 per year for one green bin to be emptied. You can have additional green bins emptied at a cost of £25 each. The £30 charge covers the 12 months from 5 June 2017. If you sign up part way through the year, the cost is the same.

If you don't already have the green bins that you need, you will have to buy them from the Council at a cost of £23 each. You can buy bins online when you sign up and pay for the collection service.

How to sign up and pay

You can pay by debit or credit card. Once you have paid, we will send you an information pack including a subscription sticker for your bin.


The free garden waste collection service will finish on 2 June, and the new chargeable service will start on 5 June 2017.

If you sign up and pay for the garden waste collection service, there will be no change to collection days and the Council will continue to empty green bins every two weeks (except for the Christmas period.) To check your collection day, put your address or postcode into the "Your West Lancashire" panel on this page.
