Garden waste collections

About the garden waste service

Our brown bin service lets Rotherham residents have their garden waste collected from the kerbside all year round.

With our garden waste service you get 20 collections over the year. These are fortnightly for most of the year, dropping to monthly over the winter. The collection period for the current year is 1 March 2021 to 25 February 2022. 

We’ve kept the prices the same as last year – so the annual subscription is £40 for the first brown bin, and £31 for an additional bin. Please note - we are unable to offer part year subscriptions.)

If you used the service in 2020/21 and renew for 2021/22, you’ll receive a £5 discount (per household). This is because of the disruption to the service during 2020, due to COVID-19. This brings down the cost down to £35 for the first bin for 2021/22.

If you don’t want to renew, you can apply for a refund of £5 (per household)

When you subscribe, you'll receive a bin sticker and a calendar showing your collection days when you subscribe. You can also find out your collection day and download a PDF calendar online. If you don’t already have one of our brown bins, we’ll deliver one to you.

To get your brown bin emptied, leave it at the kerbside by 7am on your collectiion day . We recommend storing brown bins securely between collections, as the permits are valuable.
