Licence stickers for 2023/24 service

You must display a licence sticker on each bin to be collected. Stick it to a clean and dry section on the back of your green bin, on the handle side. We won’t empty your green bin unless it has a valid sticker licence.

The garden waste licence is only valid for the property for which it was originally bought. It cannot be transferred.

Contact us to report a lost, stolen or damaged licence and we will send you a replacement.  

Garden waste collections

Garden waste bins are collected every two weeks. Put your bin out ready for collection by 6am on your collection day. Find your garden waste collection day.

Return your old garden waste bin

If you cannot hold onto your bin, you can make a request to remove a garden waste bin.

Please note: we cannot give you a date for when your bin will be removed. You may need to wait some time until we can collect it.
