How the garden waste collection scheme works
Garden waste is collected fortnightly over the ten month period February to November inclusive. It is possible to join the scheme at any time in the year although you will still be required to pay the full annual charge.
When you purchase a 180 litre brown wheeled bin you will be sent a licence to attach to the top of the bin lid. Both will arrive within 10 working days.
Only garden waste contained within the Council issued bin will be collected from the kerbside. You may subscribe to more than one bin at an additional cost.
Please ensure you present your garden waste by 6.00 am on the day of collection. Should your collection be missed due to contractor failure, the Council will ensure the garden waste is collected by the end of the second working day following the date of receipt of the call.
Please remember that garden waste must not be put in the household waste bin.
Wheeled bin subscriptions are due for renewal in February each year and we will contact you beforehand.
If you move house within the Stroud District and still require the service please tell us your new address and take the brown bin with you.
Please take care of your bin because if it is lost or stolen we will not replace it. You will be required to purchase another bin to continue the service so it is suggested you may want to mark it to indicate it belongs to you/your property.
