Brown bin

Garden waste collection

The last date to sign up and pay for brown bin collections in 2019 is 12 noon on Monday 30 September.

If you paid for the service on or before 29 August, your brown bin sticker should be delivered by 9 September.

Follow the instructions on where and how to apply the sticker to the bin. We will only empty a bin with a valid sticker that's correctly displayed.

Collections are fortnightly up to mid-November.

Sign up and pay for service

  • You can still sign up and pay for the service, but we will only empty your brown bin when a valid sticker is displayed on it.
  • Please allow up to 6 weeks for us to process your request, add your property to a collection route and arrange for delivery of your bin sticker.
  • We will empty your stickered bin on your next scheduled collection day.

The cost is £35 per brown bin. A property can have a maximum of 6 bins.

Read terms and conditions of garden waste collection service and how to use your brown bin.

You cannot pay for this service if you:

  • are a local business
  • receive a 'black bag' collection of your waste
  • are in a 'new build' property which has not yet got a completion certificate. Check on the One Scotland Gazetteer site.
