Sign up for garden waste collections

Garden waste subscriptions for the year 2021/22 are now closed. If you have garden waste to dispose of between now and March 2022, you can take it to a Household Waste Recycling Site or compost it.

You will be able to sign up for the 2022/2023 garden waste service from February 2022. For more information nearer the time, sign up to our Waste and recycling email newsletter.

Garden waste disposal is a paid-for service in Horsham District. For £42 you'll get convenient kerbside garden waste collections for a whole year.

  • The service runs for a 12 month period from April 1 to March 31
  • We make 25 collections per year. Bins are collected every two weeks, except at Christmas
  • Visit our Garden waste bin page for information on what you can and cannot put in your garden waste bin
  • There is no discount for signing up part-way through the year
  • If you do not have a garden waste bin at your home, you will need to buy one when you sign up for the service. The garden waste bin has green sides and a brown lid. Garden waste bins cost £40.50 for a 140 litre and £43.40 for a 240 litre bin
  • You can sign up extra bins to the service for £33 each
