Garden Waste Service (Brown Bin)

Our brown bin service has changed. You now need to subscribe to our garden waste service if you would like your brown bin to be emptied.

Brown Bin

We introduced our new chargeable garden waste collection service on 3rd April 2017.

This means that households will need to be subscribed to the service for their brown bin to be emptied.

Read more about the scheme and why we have introduced a charge.

How to subscribe

Each brown bin subscription costs £40 and runs until March 2018.

You can sign up and pay by:

Once we have received your payment, we will send you a confirmation letter and unique addressed sticker within 10 working days.

If you have subscribed to the scheme and are moving house within Fenland, you can transfer your subscription to your new property. Transfer your subscription to your new property.

Removal of unwanted brown bins

We are removing brown bins from properties that no longer want them. You do not need to contact us - simply leave your empty bin on the usual collection boundary of your property on your scheduled removal date. We will not remove bins that have items in them or are labelled with a subscription sticker. 

Please note that if you choose to have your brown bin removed and later wish to subscribe to the service, you will be subject to a delivery charge of £30 per bin.
