Garden waste

All information relating to Shepway's garden waste scheme


Our garden waste collection scheme is more popular than ever and continues to offer:

  • Storage and removal of everyday garden waste, leaves and cut flowers
  • Convenient fortnightly collections that fit in with your other waste collections
  • Assisted collections for those who need it
  • Contribution to producing a high quality compost

How much does it cost?

  • It costs £45 per year to join for the period 1 April - 31 March
  • If you need a new or replacement bin there is a one off charge of £29.95. This bin will be delivered within 28 working days of signing up to the scheme

You'll have to pay this fee even if you only need the collection for part of the year.
