Garden waste

Background information

  • What is happening?

    Braintree District Council is replacing its current garden waste collection service with a new subscription-based service from week commencing 4 March 2024.

    The new service will provide a fortnightly collection throughout the year (with a 2-week suspension over Christmas/New Year) unlike the current service which stops over the winter months.

    If you wish to use the service, you will need to ‘opt-in’ by registering and paying the subscription fee in advance. Payment can be made on-line using a debit or credit card. Only those who sign-up to the new service will have their garden waste collected.

    We will let residents know when registration is open for the early bird discount. Further communication will be issued on our website and social media.

    We will then let you know when the payment system goes live so that you can complete your subscription. The preferred method of payment will be online on the Council’s website and usual communication channels.
