There is an annual charge in April of £52 for the year. New customers will also need to buy a garden bin which costs £25.

What happens to the garden waste?

The garden waste is taken to Trumps Farm in Chertsey where it is broken down into compost. This compost then goes to local farms in the area.

* If you do not have room for a garden waste wheelie bin, we can provide you with a suitable bag, which will be collected in the same way at a charge of £36 per year.
