Subscriptions for West Northants garden waste service

Residents across West Northamptonshire are being reminded they can sign up for the forthcoming year of optional, chargeable garden waste collections which begin next month.

The garden waste subscription service has been running successfully in the Northampton and Daventry areas for some time, but is new to households in the South Northants area.

How to sign-up

The annual subscription charge for the fortnightly service from 4 April 2022 to the end of March 2023 is £42 per bin and can be paid online via debit or credit card

Those who are unable to get online can subscribe to the service by phoning the council on 0300 126 7000.

You can sign up any time, and once payment is processed, you will receive your new 2022/23 garden waste permit for sticking onto your bin so it will be collected.

Home composting

If you do not wish to sign up to the service you have the option of home composting, with the chance to buy a discounted composter bin for £10 at get composting by typing in your postcode. You can also recycle garden waste at any of our household waste recycling centres.

More information

If you live in South Northants and decide not to sign up to the service then you will receive your final garden waste collection in the week beginning either 21 or 28 March. After the service launch, further details will be available on returning your unused garden waste bins, should you wish to do so.

I would encourage residents to remember to subscribe if they wish to receive garden waste collections for the year ahead. The quickest and most popular way to sign up is on our website using a debit or credit card, but if they can’t access the internet or don’t feel confident to do so then they can also phone us on our main number or pop along to our offices where we’ll be happy to guide them through the process.

Due to large demand there are times that the website and phone lines can be particularly busy, but there’s still plenty of time to subscribe so I would encourage residents to try again later if this happens.

Extending the service across the whole of West Northamptonshire is a further step towards ensuring that all of our residents receive fair and equal services no matter where they live. We realise this is a change for our South Northants area residents, but we are doing everything we can to make the transition as smooth as possible.
