Sign up for garden waste collections

If you would like us to collect your green bins, you will need to sign up for collections. You must live in Canterbury, Herne Bay, Whitstable or the surrounding villages.

A subscription for one bin costs £45. Each additional bin will cost £35.

If you signed up last year by Direct Debit, a payment for this year's subscription will have been taken from your account. We'll send a new sticker to your collection address at the end of January. 

If you don't have a subscription, or you don't pay by Direct Debit, you'll be able to sign up in February for this year. Collections will start in March.

How collections work

If you don't have a green bin, or you need more than one, you must buy a bin from Serco. You won't be given a green bin as part of the service.

Once you've signed up, we'll send you a sticker to put on your bin so that we know you have paid for collections. It may take up to 14 days to arrive.

Your first collection will be after you have received your sticker, and collections run from March to December.
