Garden waste collection service

Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Council operate a garden waste collection service.

Get a new brown bin subscription

Brown bins are available through a subscription costing £55.00 each.

Any household can apply but access to the scheme depends on there being easy and safe access for collectors and collection vehicles.

You can have as many brown bins as you'd like.

If you move to another property (within the Babergh or Mid Suffolk districts) you can take your brown bins with you. You will need to let us know about your new address so we can transfer the service.

Payment must be made by credit card or debit card when you order the bin. Payments made using a credit card will be subject to a 1.5% surcharge.

After subscribing, you will receive a fortnightly collection of your garden waste and the hire of a 240 litre brown bin.

When the bin is delivered no one needs to be at the property to sign for the bin and the collection calendar and terms and conditions will be posted through your door.

Brown bins remain in the property of the Council at all times. Further information.
