Order or renew a garden waste bin

Please note that garden waste must not be put in refuse (general rubbish) or recycling bins.

New subscriptions

We offer a garden waste collection service.

Collections are carried out every two weeks, except for the weeks of Christmas and New Year.

There is a charge, per year, to subscribe for this service.

  • For Babergh residents, the charge is £60.00 per bin.
  • For Mid Suffolk residents, the charge is £57.50 per bin.

Your application might need to be assessed to see if it is possible to carry out your collections easily and safely.

Once you have applied for a brown bin, you will normally receive it within four weeks.

You don't need to be at home when your bin is delivered, and your subscription will begin from the delivery date.

You can subscribe for as many brown bins as you like. Please also use the link below to apply for additional brown bins.
