Garden waste & composting
All householders across Mendip can subscribe to a fortnightly garden waste collection service, which is chargeable.
Garden Waste Renewal Notice 2020/21:
Information relating to renewing your garden waste subscription will be available soon.
New Garden Waste Subscribers
The garden waste subscription runs from 1st April to the 31st March the following year, if you would like to subscribe we recommend to apply in April 2020 to receive the full year.
Payment is required in advance and is non-refundable. Please read the full garden waste terms and conditions for further information.
Garden waste collections are fortnightly and usually on the alternate week to your refuse collection, although for some people the collection can be on a different day. There are no garden waste collections in the two weeks after Christmas and garden waste collections may be suspended during periods of severe weather.
To find out what day your waste is collected please search using your address:
Garden bins must be taken to your new address and not left at the old address, unless you are moving out of Somerset altogether. If you move to a new district within Somerset then please take their bin with you and we will replace it for the correct colour bin at your new home. Please complete the online form below if you move, or have a change of name.
To cancel garden waste service
Refunds cannot be issued for cancelling the service during the year. If you no longer wish to use the service you can arrange for the bin to be collected. Simply complete the form below.
