Garden Waste Collection Scheme – Sign up by 22nd January 2023
Residents of the South Hams who want to sign up to the new fortnightly garden waste collection service are being encouraged to sign up before 22 January, to ensure the service can be as efficient as possible.
Published: 12 January 2023
Thousands of residents have already signed up for the service since subscriptions went live on 1 November 2022.
Anyone in the district can sign up; an annual £49 subscription covers collections for one brown wheelie bin, with a maximum of two subscriptions for two bins per household.
The first collections will begin in March. The Council is encouraging everyone who wants their first collection in March to sign up by 22 January.
This is so that Council staff have enough time to create the collection rounds and get everything ready ahead of launch. The more people that sign up by 22 January, the more robust and efficient the rounds will be.
How to sign up:
Anyone will still be able to sign up after 22 January, but their starting date may be delayed.
Residents can sign up to the service in two ways:
- The quickest and easiest way to sign up is on our website:
www.southhams.gov.uk/gardenwaste – The website is also full of information and useful FAQs on the service.
- Alternatively, call us: You can call us on 01803 861234. We expect phone lines to be very busy, so there may be a wait.
