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 full 10 month subscription for one bin will cost £45. Each additional bin will cost £35.

If you sign up part way through a subscription year, you'll pay for however many months are left.

How it works

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. Please put it on the top of the bin lid so that our teams can see it. Your first collection will be after you have received your sticker.

For the first year, collections will run from July to December. For each following year, they will run from March to December. We will collect your bins every two weeks on your normal recycling collection day.
