Additional Garden Waste Subscription Service

We offer an opt-in service to collect a second green-lidded bin (or more if required) for your extra garden waste. Normal green-lidded bin collections will not change.

Please note: this service is live between March and November and is suspended over the winter months, December to February.

Subscriptions are now open for 2020:

The 2020 collection service will cost £55 per additional bin and the cost of purchasing an additional green-lidded bin will be £25. Additional bins will be collected at the same time and frequency as your usual green-lidded bin collection.

How the service works

Householders who subscribe to the service will be provided with a subscription sticker, which has a unique serial number. This sticker will need to be attached to an additional Dacorum Borough Council green-lidded bin to make it eligible for collection (newly purchased additional green-lidded bins will already come with the sticker attached). These additional bins will be collected on the same day and at the same frequency as your current green-lidded bin - the garden waste collection season typically runs from March to November.

What does it cost?

Additional green-lidded bins cost £25 per bin. If you have previously purchased a green-lidded bin from us, this can be used as your additional bin. The subscription fee applies to each individual additional bin and is £55. The subscription is not a rolling contract, you will need to subscribe to the service for each year that you wish to have it. For costing examples, please see our frequently asked questions below.

How many additional green-lidded bins can I buy?

Additional Garden Waste Service bins

You can purchase an unlimited number of additional green-lidded bins, but the fee is still £25 per bin, plus the seasonal subscription fee for that bin. Once you have bought the additional bin it is yours to keep until you move out of Dacorum. If you wish to subscribe to the service the next year you would only need to pay the subscription fee for the additional bin. If you have previously purchased a Dacorum Borough Council green-lidded bin then you will only need to pay the subscription fee.

The additional bins that are provided will have a grey body and a green lid, and will arrive with subscription stickers placed on the lid of the bin (pictured).
