Garden Waste Collections

Love gardening but dislike the time, mess and cost of putting garden waste in your car and driving to the recycling site?

The fast, clean and cheap alternative is a subscription to South Somerset District Council's efficient garden waste collection service.

You get a roomy wheeled bin that is easy to fill as you walk it around your garden, saving time and energy going back and forth. And the bin holds your garden waste neatly in a corner; no more messy piles of rubbish blowing in the wind.

Wheel your bin outside for the fortnightly collection and our staff will empty it, leaving you to sit back and smell the roses instead of using fuel and time going to the recycling centre.

We collect flowers, plants, grass cuttings, leaves, hedge trimmings, almost all weeds, and even branches up to four inches across, and compost them in Somerset.

1.  Garden Waste Bins (New Subscriptions and Renewals):

Renew Or Join

Subscriptions start from 1st April each year. You can join the service during the year, but the full fee will apply. Refunds cannot be issued for cancelling the service during the subscription period.

Subscriptions for the service to start from April 2015 are now available.

From April 2015 there are two options available:

A 12 month subscription is £48 This service remains good value and offers a quick and easy way for your garden waste to be collected and composted.

A 24 month subscription is £91. We are continuing to offer a 2 year option as last year it proved popular with our customers. We are able to offer a discount as we save money by reducing our administration and postage costs. In addition, 24 month subscribers will be protected from any possible price increase in the second year of their subscription.  For example customers opting for the two year subscription last year have saved £6.50 (7.1%) over the two years.

A summary of the service is available on our Garden Waste Leaflet

2.  Garden Waste Sacks:

Alternatively, customers can apply to use compostable garden sacks, which currently cost £25 for 10 sacks.  These sacks can be left out for collection each fortnight on the collection day for garden waste for the property.
