Order or renew a garden waste bin
Please note that garden waste must not be put in refuse or recycling bins.
We offer a garden waste collection service for the annual cost of:
- £57.50 per bin for Mid Suffolk residents
- £60.00 per bin for Babergh residents
Both prices include a £5 delivery & admin fee. These costs are set independently by each council every year, which means they can be different between districts.
For this price we provide a brown bin, which is collected on a fortnightly schedule. This excludes the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s Day.
You can apply for as many brown bins as you like. However your application will be assessed to see if there is easy and safe access to carry out your collection.
We aim to deliver your bin as soon as possible, however this can take up to four weeks during busy periods. Please note that the subscription will only start once delivery has been made.
You don't need to be home to have your bin delivered. We'll post some information through your door.
If you are looking for an alternative way to recycle your garden waste, you may wish to read information about home composting.

To renew your garden waste subscription, all you will need are your customer and invoice numbers. These can be found at the top of your renewal invoice.
Moving house within the districts?
You can take your garden waste bins with you. You will need to let us know your new address, so we can organise collections.
Leaving the districts?
