Garden waste service subscriptions

New subscribers

The service is open for new subscribers.

Existing subscribers

If you have a subscription for our garden waste service it should expire on 31 May. But this year we will be extending it by 4 weeks to the end of June to make up for the collections that were missed because of the recent disruptions to the service.

We'll include full details in the annual renewal letter that we will be sending you shortly. The letter will also include details of how to sign up for the service next year.
