Garden Waste

The garden waste collection service provided by Burnley Council has come to a temporary stop for its usual winter break.

Collections will re-start on Monday 26th February 2018 for those households that have subscribed to the service.

The council introduced a charge for the service in summer 2017. The decision 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 council will only collect garden waste bins from those residents who have paid the subscription charge. Subscriptions will re-open in February 2018. More information will be availible nearer the time.

The leaflet downloadable on the right provides more detail about the chargeable scheme. It was produced before the paid-for service was introduced but still has some useful information and advice about the scheme.

Need to return your garden bin

If you have a garden waste bin and you do not intend to subscribe to the service, the Council will come and collect your garden bin. The bins will be collected on Monday 18th December. Click here to inform us that you would like your garden waste bin collecting.
