If you wish to receive fortnightly garden waste collections you will need to subscribe to our chargeable service. This change does not affect other waste collection services.
Garden waste subscriptions are valid for a 12 month period from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018.
The subscription charge is £30.00 per bin and will cover garden waste collections made between 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018. This is equivalent to £1.20 per collection.
Please note: If you do not already have a brown bin, you will need to request a new bin, which includes a delivery charge of £15.00.
You can renew or apply online by completing our garden waste collection (apply or renew) form.
Please note: Subscriptions can take up to 10 working days to process and your collections are not guaranteed during this period.
You will shortly receive a unique bin sticker in the post. Please follow the instructions on the reverse of the sticker and ensure it is clearly displayed on your bin.
Should your next collection fall before your sticker has arrived please place your bin out for collection as normal and we will make every effort to carry out your collection. However please note that subscriptions can take up to 7 working days to process and you are not guaranteed a collection during this period. We will not return to empty any bins reported as missed where subscriptions have been purchased within the last 7 working days.
If your sticker has not arrived three weeks from receipt of this email please contact us and we will order a replacement.
You have 14 working days from the date you subscribed to cancel your subscription.
Requests to cancel the service must be made in writing via one of the following ways:
Preston City Council
Please note: cancellations cannot be accepted by phone.
If you choose not to subscribe, then you must either take your garden waste to a Household Waste Recycling Centre or compost it at home. You should not dispose of garden waste in your general refuse bin.
If you no longer require your brown bin you should contact us to arrange for its removal.
