Updated 24/11/14 at 13:42 - Guildford Borough Council is experiencing an intermittent problem with its phone lines. An engineer is on site and we are working as fast as we can to resolve this. Our email and online systems are still working. If you do not know the email address of the team or person you are trying to contact, please use email@example.com. Thanks for your patience at this time.
If you do not want to compost and are unable to take your garden waste to the local Community Recycling Centre (rubbish tip) you can sign up to our garden waste collection scheme. This is a kerbside collection of garden waste from £30 per year.
By signing up to the service you will receive:
The bin should be presented for collection from 6.30am on the day of collection.
You can join at any time during the year but subscriptions run until March 27 2015. They are not reduced if you join later than the start of the subscription year.
You can have as many bins as you require, each additional bin will be a further £30.
You sign up to the scheme once you have paid for your bin. You can pay in a number of ways including:
Please note, there is a small surcharge for using a credit card, there is no charge for using a debit card.
We will not be sending receipts for payments or vouchers. The delivery of your bin will be your proof of subscription. If you choose not to renew for the following year we will collect the bin from your property.
If you are joining the garden waste service for the first time since we have changed to wheeled bins in the 2014/15 subscription year we will deliver the bins during March.
If you are increasing the number of garden waste bins your subscription is for we will deliver the bins during March.
If you choose to join the service, or increase the number of bins you have collected, after 1 March 2015 we cannot guarantee delivery of your wheeled bin before 31 March 2015. We will deliver these at the earliest opportunity.
We will not be issuing proof of subscription with the bin. The bin is proof of subscription to the service.
If your bin lid is not closing this will settle down within a couple of weeks, there is no need to call for a replacement bin.
We no longer issue garden waste vouchers for garden waste wheelie bins, the bin is your proof of purchase for the subscription of the garden waste service
If you are reducing the number of bins you have collected or not renewing your subscription we will collect your bin back from you. We will collect these during April. To help us with this please leave your bin outside your property.
