Garden waste collection service
From April we will be offering a new in-house garden recycling service across the district.
Delivering the service ourselves will help us meet our recycling ambitions and help us respond better to local residents.
If you already have a brown bin for garden recycling we will be getting in touch in February to explain the changes and open up the renewal process.
New customers will also be welcome at this time.
If you are an existing customer it is possible that your collection day may change.
Which area am I in currently?
If you currently have a garden recycling bin from Mansfield District Council and need to get in touch about it please call 01623 463 463 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you currently have a garden recycling bin from Rushcliffe Borough Council and need to get in touch about it please call 0115 981 9911 or email email@example.com
How much will it cost?
For just £35 a year you will get:
- A brown bin

The service runs from 1 April to 31 March. There are no concessions or pro-rata for joining the service part-way through the year.
