Garden waste service

Service information

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.

Cost of the service

The cost of the service is  £55 subscription fee per bin from 1st February 2022 for the April 2022 - March 2023 service.

There has been no increase in the cost of the service since it started in 2016, and therefore the current service is being subsidised by Harborough District Council and the tax payer. Due to inflation in associated costs to run the service, the council can no longer subsidise this cost and must raise the price for 2021. However; this equates to just an extra 71 pence per collection, bringing the total to £2.62 per collection. For this price a HGV and crew will collect at residents properties and dispose of the waste.
