Garden waste licence for collections up to 31 March 2021
A new licence costs £30 and covers the period to 31 March 2021. Garden waste licences run annually from April to March, but this year residents’ 2019-20 licences were extended to 30 June this year, allowing council officers to concentrate on the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since last year there have been some important changes to the service:
- Food waste CANNOT be placed in your garden waste bin
- Food waste is collected separately, and weekly, from your new (dark grey coloured)
- outside food bin. You can keep using your small green food caddy indoors
Garden waste collections are now made fortnightly

Should you use the service?
We’re taking steps to try and reduce our carbon emissions and as part of this we’re asking residents to consider composting more at home instead. Composting at home greatly reduces the impact of transport and can significantly improve biodiversity in your garden. You can reduce green waste and make your garden a better place for wildlife through simple changes in how you garden. Find out more at: www.recyclenow.com/reduce-waste/composting
