Garden waste subscription

The garden waste (brown bin) collection scheme and how to subscribe.

The garden waste scheme runs annually from 1 March to 30 November, allowing you to dispose of your garden waste appropriately.

Subscription to this service is optional. It costs £45 per scheme year.

For this price, you get:

  • a large brown garden waste bin, delivered to you (if you don't already have one)
  • a garden waste collection every 2 weeks except in December, January and February
  • a garden waste pack. This includes a bin identification sticker for each bin and a collection calendar. 

You can't put these items in your brown bin:

  • plastic bags
  • plant pots
  • stones
  • rubble
  • soil
  • household rubbish
  • food

Visit the BwD Recycle website to find out what items can go inside your brown bin.

Please see our terms and conditions before signing up for the service.

There is a statutory 14 day cancellation period from the date of payment.
