Garden Waste Subscription Service

COMING SOON - Early Bird Discount for £50. Sign up by 31 January 2024. Keep an eye on our webpage for further updates.

We provide a regular service for the collection of one garden waste bin per household. Additional garden waste bins can be requested for a charge.

This year we are aligning payments with the council’s financial year. This means that this year’s subscription will cover the period from 1 July 2023 until 31 March 2024 and the payment due is £41.25 per additional garden bin.

We will deliver your bin within 10 working days of receiving your payment.

If you move to another house in Huntingdonshire you can take your bin with you. Please notify us of your new address so we can let our collection crews know.

If you move to an address outside of Huntingdonshire, you must leave the bins at the property. Please let us know that you are moving out and we will arrange to collect the bin(s).

Yes – you can make a personal arrangement with a neighbour to share the cost of the additional garden bin service. We will allocate the bin to the property that pays for it and will withdraw it if payment is not received.

Due to the current financial situation, we have reluctantly decided to introduce this charge. Garden waste collection services currently cost £0.9 million per year to provide and a number of councils are charging for all garden waste collections. We have chosen to charge only for additional garden waste bins.

You can ask us to remove your additional garden waste bin via our online form.

If you have already paid the annual charge for the bin you will not be given a refund. If you have a direct debit set up for this payment, please ensure that you cancel this with your bank
