We have had a number of staff who have had to self-isolate, due to the effect of Covid 19 (‘coronavirus’). This is having an effect on operations today, however we are doing all we can to maintain operations across all of our collection services.
Please be aware that if you sign up to this service then it may be subject to some disruption.
Please only subscribe to this service if you live in/your property is in the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme.
Garden waste subscriptions taken out for 2019 need to be renewed if you want your garden waste collections to continue in 2020.
If your New Year resolution is to do more gardening, you can sign up, too!
Prices have been held at 2019 levels for this year with a single bin being emptied for £36, and extra bins for £30.
If you would like your garden bin(s) emptied in 2020 you will need to sign up to our garden waste service.
It will cost £36 for a single garden waste bin and £30 for each additional one at the same address, and provides fortnightly collections between January 2020 and December 2020. This is for collections every fortnight throughout the year with no winter break but with altered collection dates over Christmas and New Year.
Garden waste subscriptions run from January – December. That means it’s beneficial to sign up early in the year to receive the maximum number of collections. Regardless of when you sign up during the year your annual garden waste subscription will always run to the end of December.
Once you have filled in the form you will be asked for your debit/credit card details to make a payment. We’ll send out your sticker and collections will start in January.
Your garden waste bin(s) will be emptied every fortnight on the same weekday as your household waste bin, but on alternate weeks, unless other factors such as very bad weather or operational issues stop the service from running.
In such circumstances we will endeavour to return to empty your garden waste bin as soon as possible.
