Sign up to the garden waste service

You can sign up online for a regular garden waste collection from your property.

Not all homes in North Somerset need this service, so it’s better value for everyone if we charge for this separately. You can pay for up to one year at a time.

The cost to sign up

Most residents will have garden waste bins, but some households will need garden waste sacks. This will be automatically determined when you sign up.

Each household can have a maximum of two garden waste bins or six garden waste sacks. One bin is equivalent to three garden waste sacks.

A single subscription will give you either one bin or three sacks. Each household can have a maximum of two subscriptions.

New garden waste bins are 240 litres and each garden waste sack is 80 litres.

If you receive Council Tax support

If you receive Council Tax support, we will subsidise the cost by 75% for each bin or three sacks. The discount will be automatically applied when you sign up. You are only eligible for this discount if you receive Council Tax support.

If you are unsure if this applies to you, check your Council Tax bill to see if you receive Council Tax support.
