Brown bins are being introduced for garden waste.
You will need to sign up and pay for this service. If you subscribed to the garden waste service in 2017/18 and want to receive the same number of bins you had last year, free of charge, you need to subscribe before 16 July 2018. After this date there will be a charge of £25.
• Additional brown bins can be ordered
• Alternatively, compost your grass cuttings, leaves and weeds
• No unwanted items such as plastic or wood
• You no longer need a subscription sticker for the bin
Green bins will be used for recycling paper and cardboard.
If you don’t already have a green bin you can order one, free of charge, before 16 July (this excludes new properties or replacement bins. Visit our charges page for more details). After this date there will be a charge of £25.
A leaflet outlining the changes is being delivered to all home in the borough. Keep an eye out for your copy or alternatively you can download one below:
