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. 

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. 

When you sign up for our garden waste service, you’ll receive a welcome pack containing:

  • a bin sticker to show you’ve paid
  • your collections calendar.

You can also find your collection dates 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 the day of collection.

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