Chargeable Garden Waste Collection Service

Charges are being introduced for the Garden Waste Collection Service from March 2020.

Householders wishing to recycle garden waste in an Inverclyde Council brown bin will need to buy a seasonal Garden Waste Permit. Inverclyde Council’s annual charge for collecting garden waste from the kerbside in 2020 is £30.00 per bin.A seasonal permit is required for each brown bin presented containing garden waste.

On receipt of payment, the householder will receive a permit which should be attached to the back of the bin to indicate to collection crews to uplift the bin. If bins are presented containing garden waste, without a valid permit, they will not be emptied. The £30.00 charge applies regardless of at what point in the year the permit is issued, all permits issued will expire on your last recycling collection day in November 2020.

We will provide much more information on the Chargeable Garden Waste Collection Service in the coming weeks and anticipate permits will be available to purchase in the New Year.
