Green fingered residents across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole can now sign up to the 2023 Garden Waste collection service.

Residents need to sign up to this service by 16 December 2022 to receive all 22 collections in 2023.

The service runs fortnightly from 13 February until 15 December 2023 and costs £60. The price of the current years’ service was discounted to reflect two missed collections from 2021. The price for the 2023 service includes all 22 collections, a rise due to inflation and other operational costs.

Councillor Mark Anderson, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Place, BCP Council commented:

"If 2023 is the year that you’re finally going to tackle your garden, then our garden waste service is an invaluable one for everyone! It saves on time spent taking your garden waste to one of our recycling centres, as well as money spent on fuel to get there.

"So far this year we’ve collected over 10,764 tonnes of garden waste, and we want to increase that figure further in 2023!

"Our garden waste service, along with home composting, is an environmentally friendly way of disposing of your garden waste as the waste that’s collected is turned into a high-quality compost, which is then used in agriculture."

To find out more about the garden waste service and sign up for 2023, please visit our Garden Waste webpages.
