Posted on Thursday 7 November 2019

If you’re passionate about gardening and need somewhere to put all your garden excess, you can now sign up to BCP Council’s 2020 garden waste collection service.

The service runs from February-December 2020 for Bournemouth and Poole residents, and pro-rata from April-December 2020 for Christchurch residents, with a fortnightly bin collection.

Bournemouth and Poole residents wishing to receive all 22 collections for the standard price of £46 for one bin, must register by Wednesday 8 January 2020. Christchurch residents have up until the 1 March 2020 to register for their garden waste service from BCP Council, which will commence in April 2020 with a pro-rata cost of £37.65 to reflect the length of service from April-December.

The current garden waste services are popular with nearly 50,000 households across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole registering in 2019, with 14,250 tonnes of garden waste collected in 2018/19. The waste is turned into a high-quality compost going full circle on the land.
