Due to increased demand and problems with the global plastic supply chain, we are experiencing delays in issuing new bins.
We currently advise all customers requiring new or additional bins that there may be a wait of around 4 weeks for delivery. We apologise for the inconvenience.
By agreeing to pay for the service you will be accepting the terms and conditions below.
Terms and Conditions of Garden Recycling Service
You have agreed to pay to have your garden recycling collected from your garden recycling bin.
The period of collection runs each year from 1 April to 31 March. Newark & Sherwood District
Council will endeavour to empty garden recycling bins every other week (except for the period December
to February when the bins will be emptied monthly).
If you decide to purchase the service part way through the year there are no reductions.
If you move out of the Newark & Sherwood collection area or stop using the service for any reason,
we will not give a refund. To notify us that you no longer need your garden recycling bin(s),
email firstname.lastname@example.org or call
our customer services team on 01636 650000
If we miss your bin(s), we will do our best to collect it as soon as possible. We will not give a
refund for missing a bin(s) or being unable to collect a bin(s) due to any other factors
(such as very bad weather)
Your garden recycling bin(s) must only be used for compostable green garden waste from your property.
For full details of what is acceptable please see our website:
If you move to another address in the Newark & Sherwood collection area and you still want your garden
recycling collected, please contact us to transfer the service to your new address and then take your bin(s)
with you. If you move within the district but into an area covered by one of our partner authorities,
the service is not transferable.
We will provide you with a paid sticker(s) which you should attach to the back of your bin(s). Collection
crews will not empty any bin(s) that does not display a current sticker, unless instructed to by a
supervisor. If your sticker becomes detached or lost, contact us by email at
or call our customer services team on 01636 650000
All bin(s) remain the property of Newark & Sherwood District Council at all times.
If your bin becomes damaged, Newark & Sherwood District Council will repair or replace it free of charge
as soon as is reasonably practical. If your bin is damaged or lost, you can report this on our website https://www.newark-sherwooddc.gov.uk/gardenrecycling/ (see 'Missed, lost and damaged bins' section),
email email@example.com or call our customer
services team on 01636 650000
Payment is required every year in advance. You will be notified of the charge and payment date in advance.
