Information about our Garden Waste Collection Service

Our Garden Waste Collection Service allows Bassetlaw residents to recycle even more of their waste and is available for just £30 per season.

Collections take place every two-weeks between the beginning of March and the middle of December and your fee includes an additional 240 litre wheelie bin. 

You can use your Brown Bin to recycle grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, leaves, small branches and twigs, dead plants, weeds and cut flowers.

Please do not put plastic bin liners in with your garden waste as these cannot be recycled and your bin will not be collected.

During 2017 almost 6,500 Bassetlaw residents subscribed to the service, which generated 2,177 tonnes of garden waste and helped to prevent a large proportion of waste being sent for incineration as part of the domestic waste collection.

If you would like to recycle your garden waste but do not want to receive this service, you can buy a home composter at a reduced price by visiting the home composting website.

The Garden Waste Collection Service is for DOMESTIC properties only.  If you are a business and require your trade waste to be collected, please contact our Environment Services Department on 01909 535146.
