Residents of Horsham District can now sign up for 2018/19 garden waste bin collections.
The scheme operates from April every year. At just £39 per year, the kerbside collection service represents excellent value for money and is the cheapest garden waste service in West Sussex at a significantly lower price than neighbouring councils. You can also request additional bins to be collected at the reduced cost of £29 per extra bin.
Signing up online is quick, easy and secure. For more details and to sign up or renew please visit Horsham District Council’s website at www.horsham.gov.uk/bins/garden-waste . Alternatively you can call 01403 733144.
There is no administration fee for customers paying by direct debit or paying online. An administration fee of £2.50 will be applied to customers paying by credit or debit card over the phone.
Almost 37,000 residents now take advantage of this low cost service, representing over 58% of the Horsham district (excluding flats).
The scheme operates from April each year to the following March with a short break over Christmas/New Year to allow for additional blue-top bin collections. Additional or replacement bins are available to buy.
Cabinet Member for Waste, Recycling and Cleansing, Cllr Philip Circus said:
“We know we have many keen gardeners across the district who will want to sign up and benefit from this excellent service and registering for it is very easy.”
“For the many residents already benefitting from this service, you will be receiving renewal letters in the coming weeks inviting you to continue with the fortnightly collection throughout 2018/19.”
Once signed up to the service a membership sticker will be sent to confirm you have paid for the service. These will be sent out before the 1st of April following receipt of payment.
The membership sticker must be displayed on your garden waste (brown-top) bin for it to be emptied. Garden waste bins put out for collection without a valid licence sticker will not be emptied.
Please do not put garden waste in your household waste (green-top) bin or your recycling (blue-top) bin as contaminated bins will not be emptied. You can take it to your local Household Waste Recycling Site (HWRS) or you may wish to make your own compost.
