A chargeable* fortnightly garden waste collection service runs from February to November.

A garden waste license costs £36 and is valid February - November. New customers will also need to buy a garden bin which costs £20 (in the first year you pay £56). All applications will be charged at the full license price (£36) no matter what time of year the subscription is made. (e.g. subscription made July 2017 will only cover months up to November 2017).
Alternatives to the garden waste collection service
The garden collection scheme is entirely optional and residents can still take their garden waste to the household recycling centres. Alternatively you may also like to compost. See www.gcc.getcomposting.com for further information on how to compost.
