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.
