Subscription and cost

The subscription cost is £41 per bin from 1 April 2023 to 31 March 2024 (collections are suspended during the winter).

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

See the terms and conditions of the garden waste service.

Once subscribed

Your bin will be collected as soon as possible after subscribing. However it takes 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.
