Garden waste collection services

Info icon
Please note that from 1 April 2016 subscriptions are priced at £35 per bin for all residents. Subsidies have been removed to fully recover the cost of the garden waste service.

Wheeled bin or compostable sacks

For an annual charge residents are either loaned a 240 litre green wheeled bin or sold a roll of 50 compostable garden waste sacks which break down at the composting site.

The bins and sacks are collected from properties and emptied every fortnight (excluding two weeks over the Christmas period). 

The collected waste is then sent to a composting facility where it is turned into a soil improver, and prevents valuable materials going to landfill.

With the convenience of household collections, there is no need to drive to Gerpins Lane Reuse and Recycling Centre with garden waste. In addition, even with home composting, there are often materials that do not compost well in a home compost bin (such as larger, woody materials) and occasionally the sheer quantity of garden waste can be hard to manage without such a service

From 1 April 2016 a years green wheeled bin service will be £35.00 per bin.

If you already have an existing contract and you would like to continue the service you currently receive, you need to login or register for a MyHavering account.
