  • A hassle-free solution in comparison to taking your garden waste to the Local Household Waste and Recycling Site
  • A sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to garden waste disposal.

How much does it cost?

Those wishing to pay to join the remainder of the 2021/22 subscription service can do so by calling 0115 917 7777, as the online payment option is currently not available.  

A letter detailing garden waste prices for the new season 2022/23 will be sent out towards the end of February 2022.

Sharing your bin with neighbours

We accept no responsibility for personal agreements made between neighbours.

We will need the address of one of the properties to log on our system when payment is made. That same address will be on the sticker to be attached to the bin and the bin must be placed outside the property which has subscribed to the service.
