Garden Waste Collections
GARDEN WASTE SERVICE
Horsham District Council operates a chargeable opt-in service for garden waste collections. Brown-topped garden waste bins that do not have a valid membership sticker on display will not be emptied.
You can join the scheme at any time but the full annual charge for the period ending 31 March 2014 will apply. Membership stickers are usually dispatched within 10 working days of application and must be displayed on your bin to ensure collection.
Like all councils in West Sussex, Horsham District Council is receiving less money from the Government and is facing difficult decisions to balance income against the cost of delivering services. We believe it is fairer that only residents that choose to participate in the scheme should pay for the service.
The annual cost of the service is just £29. Replacement or additional bins are available to buy, with the cost of emptying each additional bin at your property just £15. There is no limit to the number of additional bins you can pay to have emptied. The charge applies for the period 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2014 and remains the same whenever you join during the year.
