The service for 2022/23
Use our online form to sign up for the Garden Waste Collection Service.
The service will run from 28 March 2022 to 24 March 2023.
Once you have signed up to the service, your collection dates will be added alongside your black and green bins dates on the Find my bin day tool.
If you would like to find out your collection dates before signing up, you may request a calendar via the Request my bin day form.
You can opt in to the Garden Waste Collection Service part way through the year, however there is no reduction to cost. Please see our breakdown of costs towards the bottom of this page.
Your subscription to the Service will end on 24th March 2023 - not 12 months from the date you began your subscription.
We will aim to deliver your sticker (your physical proof of subscription to the service) in March.
Renewing your subscription
You can renew your subscription to the Garden Waste Collection Service and receive your 2022/23 sticker in March. Complete the Garden Waste renew or apply online form.
If you have renewed your Garden Waste Collection Service or have had it automatically renew as a direct debit customer and need to request an amendment, you can do so via our Request amendments to service form.

As a discretionary service which residents choose to subscribe to or not, it is essential that the Garden Waste Collection Service covers its own costs without the need for subsidy from general taxation.
Reviewed periodically to ensure the charge is set at the right level to achieve full cost-recovery, projections on income and expenditure have to be made over a five-year period.
The £40 charge for 2022/23 has been carefully calculated to take an aggregated, longer-term view of anticipated customer take-up and increased operating costs – fuel, tyres, vehicle maintenance, staffing costs etc.
It is our practice to regularly assess levels of service take-up and cost-recovery, with a further review scheduled in two years’ time.
At £40, the North Kesteven Garden Waste Collection Service continues to be the most cost-effective of all the Lincolnshire districts.
- Collection of first bin - £40.00
- Collection of additional bins - £8.00 per bin
- Purchase of additional brown bin - £35.00
