Garden Waste Charges

Residents across North Northamptonshire can now sign up for the new optional, chargeable 12-month garden waste collection service.

The annual subscription charge for the fortnightly service, with collections starting on April 3, 2023, is £40 per bin and can be paid online via debit or credit card. More details about the service and how to sign up are available in the garden waste section of the council’s website – see here.

People can sign up any time and, once payment is processed, will receive a new garden waste permit for sticking onto their bin so collection crews know to collect it.


As part of the refreshed service, the council will also be offering an enhancement to the subsidised compost bin scheme, where residents can buy a home compost bin for £5 plus delivery.

The authority will also be offering an ad hoc sack collection system, at £16.50 for ten compostable sacks, for those not needing or wanting a bin.

Residents can also take green waste to their nearest household waste recycling centre in the NNC area for free disposal.
