Garden waste collection service

If your refuse and recycling collections are made by our small waste collection vehicle we are unable to offer a garden waste service.


Annual Renewal 2022/23

Annual renewal letters were sent in April 2022 and due to service disruptions in subscription year 2021/22 this year's annual subscription has been discounted to compensate residents.

The revised annual renewal fee is £42.20 per bin.

If you pay for your subscription by debit card and havent yet made a payment your service has been ceased.  To reinstate your collection please pay online or by using our automated payment line 01621 212410. Please quote your reference number when making payment.


New subscribers

Update - 11 August 2022.

We are currently waiting for a new batch of bins to arrive from our supplier.

If you would like to join the scheme please complete our online application form and we will write to you with further details when new bins are available.  We anticipate that this will be early September 2022.

The subscription year runs from 1 April - 31 March.

The annual collection fee for a new subscriber is £50.00 per bin for the year.  With effect from 1 October we will charge a reduced pro rata collection fee of £25.00 per bin for the remainder of the subscription year.

To use the service you must use a Maldon District Council garden waste bin.  If you do not have a bin you can purchase one at a cost of £28.00.


Existing Customers requiring an additional bin

If you already subscribe to the scheme and would like an additional bin, please complete our online application form.

Please note that this is a request for an additional bin by adding a message to your request . Additional bins need to be purchased from the Council at a cost of £28.00 and will be subject to another annual subscription fee charged at the same rate for a new subscriber, currently £50.00 for the year.

Due to capacity issues we may not be able to accommodate all requests for additional bins. If this is the case, we will notify you.
