Spend more time in the garden this year - subscribe to our garden waste service and receive fortnightly collections for just £40 until the end of September 2019.

It's now time to subscribe to the Garden Waste Club, the Garden Waste Collection Service which offers West Devon residents the chance to make sure their gardens are looking their best without a trip to the tip.

What is the Garden Waste Club and how does it work?

The annual subscription service costs £40 per year and one subscription provides four generous, reusable sacks which are collected every fortnight on the same day of the week as your other waste collections.

Subscriptions run from 1 October 2018 - 30 September 2019. There are no collections over the festive period but we will collect Christmas Trees up to 7 feet tall during the following two weeks.

Once your garden waste sacks have been delivered, you simply need to fill  them and leave them at the usual collection point on your next scheduled collection day. We have technology inside our vehicles which tells the operators which properties have subscribed to the scheme so no permit is required - just use the supplied green sacks.

  • Subscriptions can be made by card payment or an annual direct debit.
  • Payments made by direct debit will automatically renew at the start of each subscription year
  • Each subscription is for 4 sacks and we aim to deliver these within 10 working days of applying for the service
  • An annual cost of £40 will apply for fortnightly collections running from 1 October 2018 to 30 September 2019, excluding the 2 weeks beginning 24 and 31 December 2018.
  • The subscription is non-refundable. Terms and Conditions apply.
