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


New and renewal subscriptions to our garden bin service are currently suspended.  The service will be available once more in February 2017 with subscription starting from 1st April 2017 for new subscribers.  Please return to this page after the 1st of February 2017. 

Renewals - if you are already a subscriber using a garden bin you will be sent a renewal notice by email or letter towards the end of January 2017 confirming how to renew if you wish to continue using the service.


2.  Garden Waste Sacks:

Alternatively, customers can apply to use compostable garden sacks, which currently cost £26 for 10 sacks.  These sacks can be left out for collection each fortnight on the collection day for garden waste for the property.

Customers can leave as many sacks out for collection as needed depending on how much waste they have produced that fortnight.
