Today’s the day that, with a simple click of your mouse, you can make this growing season’s gardening duties that much easier by signing up for brown bin garden waste collections.

Go now to For just £1.15 per week (£45 for a complete growing season’s single bin collection) Boston Borough Council will take your garden waste away every fortnight from this April to the end of November and then again from the end of February, 2021, to the end of March, 2021.

Grass cuttings, leaves, hedge and shrub trimmings, weeds and plants can all go in the brown bin.

You could even get the coming season’s service for FREE – all existing online direct debit customers continuing with the service, and new online customers signing up by direct debit, can enter a prize draw and ten lucky winners will receive the 2020/21 garden waste collection service for FREE, to the value of £45. All those eligible will receive notification.

Collections for the new 2020/21 growing season will start in April. Existing customers who signed up last year will receive the last of the current growing season’s collection until the end of March. Those who signed up online AND made a direct debit payment arrangement AND want to continue in April need do nothing more. Those who signed up online but did not make a direct debit payment arrangement need to go to today to sign up and pay again. Or make a direct debit arrangement and save themselves a job next time.

Once we have received your payment you will receive your 2020/21 sticker/s. You must write on your stickers, in permanent ink, your property number/name, street name and postcode. This will help safeguard your brown bin (which you own) and ensures your continued access to the service. Your sticker must be visible on your bin from April 1.

Cllr Yvonne Stevens, portfolio holder of waste services for Boston Borough Council, said: “I hope to welcome old and new customers to this service. They will find it to be the easiest, cleanest and most efficient way of properly disposing of their garden waste. It is also a reliable and regular service which can be depended on.”
