Garden waste charges

The garden waste collection service provided by Burnley Council is now charged for.

The issue of introducing a charge for garden waste was not taken lightly. Unfortunately, like many other local authorities across the country, the council can no longer afford to provide this non statutory service without introducing a charge.  The council faces significant financial pressures over the next three years and is facing a budget deficit of £4.5 million.

Residents can choose to “opt in” to the service. The cost (£30 per year)  is in line with other local authorities that already charge for garden waste collection.

The current free garden waste collection scheme will run until the end of April 2017. From the 1st May 2017 the council will only collect garden waste bins from those residents who have paid the subscription charge. The subscription can be paid by clicking here and completing the relevant forms.

The leaflet downloadable on the right provides more detail about the chargeable scheme.  Printed copies of this leaflet are being distributed to all households on the garden waste collection rounds.
