Green Garden Waste Collection

Subscribe to the Green Waste Collection Service

An optional, paid-for green waste collection service is now in operation. Only the green bin or bags supplied by the Council will be emptied.

Green waste that is placed in any other type of bag or container will not be collected. 

The service costs £40 annually for a fortnightly collection throughout the year (except for a fortnight during the Christmas and new year period). For new subscribers this includes a wheelie bin or, for households that are unsuitable for a wheelie bin, an annual supply of 100 green bags.

Subscribing to, or Renewing a Subscription

New Subscriptions

If you wish to order a new subscription or order additional subscriptions (additional wheelie bins) please use the link below. Please note however, that if you already have a green wheelie bin (or bags) that have been left by a previous occupant, then your property is already registered with us and you should therefore register as a renewal rather than a new subscription.

Renewing a Subscription

For subscribers that are renewing:

  • Those that use a green wheelie bin will continue to have their bin emptied fortnightly.
  • Those that are on green bag collections will receive an annual supply of 100 green bags which will be collected fortnightly.

If you wish to renew an existing subscription please use the following link:

Please note: For both new subscriptions and subscription renewals, credit card transactions will incur an additional surcharge of 1.75%. This surcharge will not apply to payments made by a debit card.

Tell us if we have missed a green waste collection

All collections are generally completed by 2.30pm so please do not report a collection as missed prior to this time.

Alternatively, call the StreetSmart Team (Monday to Friday, 9.00am - 5.00pm) on 01793 445501.

Please note: Green waste dumped in bags not supplied by Swindon Borough Council will not be removed straight away but will be stickered, advising of the various ways to lawfully dispose of green waste. 

If you suspect someone of fly-tipping any kind of rubbish, including garden waste, please report this to
