Bins and collections information
Please note that we will only empty garden waste bins from households that have opted-in to the Garden Waste Collection Service.
We do not remove garden waste bins from properties that choose not to subscribe to the new service. Harborough District residents can subscribe to the service at any time in the future so we recommend keeping your garden waste bin. If you move house the new owner may want to subscribe to the service and in future we may have to charge for new garden waste bins to be delivered to properties.
If you subscribe to the service and move to a new property in the Harborough District, your subscription will continue at your new address.
If you subscribe to the service and move home to a new property outside of the Harborough District, you will not be able to receive any refund on the subscription fee you have paid. Collections will continue to be made at the house you moved out of until that year’s subscription comes to an end.

Alternatives to using the new garden waste collection service
There are a number of alternatives to the garden waste collection service that you could choose:
- Cut your grass without the grass collection box attached and let the grass decompose and release their nutrients back into the lawn
- Take your garden waste to one of Leicestershire County Council’s recycling sites
- Buy a composting bin from Leicestershire County Council
