Rushcliffe garden waste service now open

Last updated: 20/2/2024

Rushcliffe Borough Council’s garden waste service is now open for new and existing customers giving gardeners regular green bin collections for less than 86p a week.

All customers can sign up or re-subscribe now and emails and letters inviting residents to re-join the service will be distributed shortly.

Residents can place grass cuttings, hedge clippings, twigs and small branches, weeds with excess soil shaken off, flowers, plants, leaves and bark in their green bins to help keep your garden looking fantastic in 2024.

The garden waste scheme will also help remove the need for costly additional trips to the recycling centre, a great way for residents become more ‘Carbon Clever’, reducing their carbon footprint.

Households can also manage their garden waste collections with MyAccount, a one stop shop for many Council services.

It means they can sign up, pay for additional green bins for their property and check when their next green bin collection is due, all in the same place.  

The Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Environment and Safety Cllr Rob Inglis said: “Our service continues to represent great value for money and is far cheaper than other private collection options, saving unnecessary time and fuel heading to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.

“The green waste we collect is subsequently recycled and reused at a site just outside the Borough in Oxton meaning it’s great for the environment too.

“Renew or join the service today for hassle free collection of your garden waste for the next 12 months and all for under 86p a week.”

The service costs £45 which entitles green-fingered residents to year-round fortnightly collections apart from a short period over Christmas and New Year and extra bins cost just £30 each.

After applying to the scheme, residents will be issued with a sticker which is placed onto the rear of the bin to identify that it has been paid for to help our waste collection operatives.
