Garden Waste Collection Service 2023

Published: 01/02/2023

Residents can sign up to the scheme at any time during the year, but we are encouraging people to subscribe early to ensure that they benefit from the full collection service for the season, as well as the preferential subscription rate available before 28 February 2023.  Subscriptions before this date or online throughout the season are £32 per bin. After 1 March 2023, the standard rate will be £35 if not paying online.

If you signed up for the garden waste collection service last year (2022) you will have received our new style sticker that had an RFID chip embedded within in it. This means that when you sign up for the collection service this year you will not receive a new sticker, the one already affixed to your bin will work again.

Just place your brown bin out for collection when the service starts again and your garden waste will be collected. If you did not sign up to the service in 2022 a sticker pack will be sent out to you once you have subscribed to the service.

You can sign up to the service at any point by visiting the Council’s website, by calling us on 01352 701234 or visiting your local Connects Centre.

Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Streetscene and Regional Transport Strategy, Councillor Dave Hughes said: 

“We would like to thank everyone who has previously signed up for the brown bin collection service.  As we look forward to the 2023 season, we would encourage residents to sign up early for this very popular service so that they benefit from the full collection service and reduced rate.

"We want to make sure that we encourage more people to recycle their garden waste. If you have any grass cuttings, leaves, hedge clippings, twigs, bark, and small branches, these can all be placed in your brown bin.  The bins cannot be used for fruit and vegetable peelings, food waste, cardboard, paper, soil and rubble or pet litter, animal bedding and animal waste. 

"All the garden waste collected is composted at the Council operated facility in Greenfield.  The compost produced can then be collected free of charge by Flintshire residents from one of our five Household Recycling Centres.”
