Green-fingered residents who wish to continue having their garden waste collected can now renew their subscription for the period from 1 April 2024 to 31 March 2025.
The annual charge for the fortnightly service for this year is £44 for each garden waste bin permit and covers collections for the 2024/25 period, with a two week break over Christmas and New Year. Items that can go in the green bin include grass cuttings, shrub and hedge cuttings, plants, flowers, leaves, and pruning’s, bedding from non-meat-eating pets and twigs, branches, and small logs (max 10cm diameter).
Residents who have signed up for reminders or are users of the waste collection app will have already received a message to remind them to renew their subscription, however due to GDPR regulations, the District Council has been unable to contact other service subscribers.
Garden waste permits can be renewed online at www.warwickdc.gov.uk/gardenwaste or by telephone on 01926 456123 (8.45am to 5.15pm, Monday to Wednesday; 8.45am to 5pm, Thursday and Friday). Customers can expect to receive the permit 10 working days after they’ve purchased it.
Subscriptions are open all year, but the cost will remain at £44 with no pro-rata rate available. Only green bins displaying the correct permit will be emptied.
Residents who choose not to take part in the scheme have the choice of home composting or taking their garden waste to a Household Waste Recycling Centre. In addition, Warwickshire County Council offer discounted home composting bins on their website: Composting – Warwickshire County Council
