You will be able to subscribe to the Garden Waste Service from Friday 31 January. 

Request Garden Waste Service

Garden waste collections are made every two weeks between March and November, and monthly from December to February. 

Our Assisted Collections service is also available for Garden Waste.  If you have already received an invoice and need to pay for the Garden Waste Service visit Pay for Garden Bin

However, if you require a replacement of a damaged garden bin or a stolen/missing garden bin, please do not complete this form. Contact our Customer Services team who will be able to assist.

We are currently improving our systems therefore new subscriptions will not be available until the end of January 2020.

Cost of a bin

You can rent as many garden waste bins as you like. Two sizes are available to rent:

  • a 140ltr bin for £24.00 per year, per bin
  • a 240ltr bin for £36.00 per year, per bin

Please check with neighbours and surrounding streets before reporting a garden bin as stolen. If a garden waste bin needs to be replaced due to deliberate damage, theft or going missing, a charge will be applied. Each replacement will cost:

  • 140ltr bin - £20.00
  • 240ltr bin - £30.00

The charge includes the cost of a new bin and delivery. The new bin will continue to be the property of Blaby District Council.

We do not charge for wear and tear damage to bins. This includes broken lids, missing lid pins, splits to the body of the bin or damaged wheels.

If you're moving house

Moving within the district

When moving within the district, please leave your garden waste bin at your old property. You will need to inform us when you have moved house so we can organise the delivery of a new garden bin to you and update our records to make sure the invoice is going to the correct address. Tell us you're moving house.

Moving out of the district

If you move out of the district, we will no longer collect your garden waste. Please leave your bin at the property you are leaving. Please ensure to cancel your Direct Debit instruction with your bank as we do not offer refunds for this service.
