View the Terms and conditions 

Our garden waste service offers collections every 2 weeks for 1 year. If you want to continue using the service at the end of the year you must subscribe again as renewal is not automatic. 

Bins remain the property of Croydon council. This service is operated by Veolia on behalf of Croydon council.


The service costs £61.50 per bin. You can order more than 1 bin, but your 1 year service finishes 1 year after your first bin was ordered or renewed, not 1 year after any subsequent bins are ordered.

New subscribers

New subscribers will receive a new wheelie bin with a brown lid.

Renewing your subscription

If you are renewing your subscription you should continue to use the bins you have. You can renew your subscription up to 30 days before the existing subscription end date
