You Can Now Apply for your Garden Waste Licence

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
