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 collections fortnightly for most of the year, dropping to monthly over the winter.

Service from Monday 1 March 2021 to Friday 25 February 2022

  • Sign-ups and renewals for the current year are now closed.

Service from Monday 28 February 2022 to Friday 24 February 2023

  • It is now possible to sign up or renew your subscription for 2022/23 collections.
  • The price for new customers will be £41 for the first brown bin, and £32 for an additional bin. We aren’t able to offer part year subscriptions.
  • Those who subscribed in the 2021/22 year will receive a £4 per household discount when they renew; this is a goodwill gesture in light of the two collections missed in summer 2021 due to COVID-related staff absences and a nationwide shortage of HGV drivers (Those who don’t wish to resubscribe can claim a £4 partial refund here.)

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 collection day. We recommend storing brown bins securely between collections, as the permits are valuable.
