Garden waste is a subscription bin service only. To subscribe to Garden Waste see Garden Waste collection .

Costs for new properties or developments

We provide and deliver waste collection containers to newly-built properties. There is a fee of £100 for this service. This fee is charged to the developer and is to be paid at the property numbering request stage. The containers will then be delivered when requested by the new property's occupants.

If the development is a multi-occupancy property, the fee will remain at £100 per unit. However, a site visit will be made and larger communal bins could be provided instead.

If the developer chooses not to pay the fee then it will be passed on to the occupant.

How to order

To order replacement bins, boxes, or to request a repair, complete our online form:
