|Garden waste bin||Yearly cost||Size|

All subscriptions are charged in full and run from 1 April to 31 March, regardless of the date you sign up.

You can also email email@example.com or call us on 020 8885 7700.
Once you have signed up
What you need to do
- Leave your bin out by 6am on your collection day
- Leave it where we can see it at the front of your property
We will not collect your bin if it is:
- contaminated with non-garden waste
- over-filled and the lid does not close
- too heavy – don’t compact your waste
If you often have more waste than will fit in the bin, you can order another bin (external link).
