Garden Waste Service 2021/22

Sign up for Garden Waste Collections for 2021/22 NOW!

Due to the number of new customers subscribing to the garden waste service, our bin stocks have run out. We are expecting a new bin delivery mid-September and we will deliver bins as soon as possible. 

Customers who are signed up to the service for 2020/21 collections will commence from week commencing Monday 22nd February until end of March 2021.

With a simple click, you can make this growing season’s gardening duties that much easier by signing up for brown bin garden waste collections.

For just £1.15 per week (£45 for a complete growing season’s single bin collection) Boston Borough Council will take your garden waste away every fortnight from when you sign up to the end of November and then again from the end of February, 2022, to the end of March, 2022.

Grass cuttings, leaves, hedge and shrub trimmings, weeds and plants can all go in the brown bin.

Please note that collections for the new 2021/22 growing season began at the beginning of April, but you can still sign up to the service. 

If you do not wish to sign up online telephone payments will be opening shortly.

Garden waste must not be bagged, it should be placed loosely into your brown bin. We also do not accept garden waste as side waste alongside your bin.

Top tip: To try prevent grass cuttings from getting stuck at the bottom of the bin you can place a small amount of newspaper in the bottom of your bin as a liner.

What CAN be placed in your Brown Bin?

  • Grass cuttings
  • Hedge/tree cuttings
  • Weeds
  • Pruning’s
  • Leaves
  • Branches

What CANNOT be placed in your Brown Bin?
