Garden waste collection

Details of our fortnightly garden waste collection service and how to subscribe

New subscriptions are currently suspended and will re-open in 2023.

How to subscribe

  1. You'll need an email address to set up a subscription account
  2. We'll ask you to choose and enter a password for your account
  3. Then follow the on-screen instructions to complete your subscription

Subscription and cost

The subscription cost is £40 per bin from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023 (collections are suspended during the winter). You can share a bin with a neighbour to halve the cost for you both.

If you don't already have a green bin, you must order one first. Please note that a delivery charge applies.

Once subscribed

Please note that your bin will be collected as soon as possible after subscribing. However it will take three working days to process your payment and we cannot therefore guarantee your bin will be collected on your next scheduled collection day.

Your subscription sticker will arrive within 10 working days.

Collections are fortnightly. Please ensure you put your bin out by 7am on your scheduled collection day. Only garden waste must be placed in the green bin.


If you choose not to subscribe you can either compost your green waste at home or take it to one of the household waste recycling centres operated by Lancashire County Council.
