Garden Waste Collection Service

Subscribe to our garden waste service

Residents in the Harborough District can subscribe to the garden waste collection service to have their garden waste collected for an annual £40 subscription fee per bin.

PLEASE NOTE: The garden waste collection service is provided for nine months of the financial year; with collections from April to November and the following March of that financial year.

Harborough District Council is using Charnwood Borough Council's payment system to take subscriptions for the garden waste collection service on our behalf. You will be directed to the Charnwood Borough Council website to make your payment.  Your receipt for payment will also be from Charnwood Borough Council.

We will only empty green garden waste bins from households that have opted-in to the garden waste collection service annually each year.
