Garden waste collections

A fortnightly garden waste collection service is offered to subscribers using a green wheeled bin or compostable paper sacks sold in packs of ten.

Garden Waste Bins (New Subscriptions and Renewals)

Subscriptions for the service start from 1st April each year. You can join the service at any time during the year, but the full fee will apply. Please note that refunds cannot be issued for cancelling the service during the subscription period.

There are no garden waste collections in the two weeks after Christmas.

Subscriptions for the service are now available at a cost of £55.40.

If you wish to subscribe as a new customer, please contact Customer Services on 0300 303 7806. If you wish to renew the service, it can be paid online here: Make a Garden Waste Collection Renewal payment. Please quote your subscription/reference number starting with GG.

Full terms and conditions can be found on the Somerset Waste Partnership website below.

Garden Waste Sacks

Alternatively, customers can apply to use compostable garden sacks, which currently cost £26.50 for 10 sacks. These sacks can be left out for collection each fortnight on the collection day for garden waste for the property. The sacks have a capacity of 90L.

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

There are no garden waste collections in the two weeks after Christmas.

Payment for both of these services can be made by contacting Customer Services on 0300 303 7806 by either debit or credit card.
