Every household in South Cambridgeshire is entitled to one green bin for food and garden waste, which we collect fortnightly from March to November and monthly from December to February.
You can pay to have up to a further three green bins, which we'll empty along with your first green bin. The fees for extra green bins are:
You may subscribe and pay for permits at any time but we will charge the full amount. There are no discounts or concessions.
You will receive a reminder in September asking if you wish to remain in the scheme and pay for the next year. If you renew in September, the charge for a full year is £35 per additional bin.
Once you have paid for your bin(s) you will receive a sticker to display on the bin. It's important you stick this on the back of your bin so the collection crew can see it has been paid for and know to empty it. Bins remain the property of South Cambridgeshire District Council.
