Existing customers renewing a contract

Once your garden waste collection payment is successful, we will send you a garden waste recycling sticker. Please follow the instructions and attach it to the side of your green garden waste bin. This lets our collection crews know that you are eligible for this service.

The crews will not collect from bins with out of date or missing collection stickers.
