Thousands of green fingered Eastleigh Borough residents are currently renewing their annual subscription to get their garden waste collected - and paying just £3 a month for the service.
More than 17,000 of the Borough’s 53,000 households have now signed up to the fortnightly kerbside collection service, which helps residents save on time, money and inconvenience – and do their bit for the environment.
Our service means that you can remove the hassle and expense of making regular trips to queue at the local tip, will avoid the effort of lifting a grubby bag full of green waste from car to skip, and will prevent your freshly-valeted luggage space being littered with clippings, soil and random creepy-crawlies. The collection service has the added benefit of letting you spend more time tending your shrub beds, lawn or vegetable plot.
You’ll be helping the planet too. Rather than being dumped in landfill or incinerated, the waste collected is converted into Pro-Grow, a sustainable soil conditioner that is available for sale at local household waste recycling centres.
And with Eastleigh Borough Council’s ‘Buy It &Try It’ offer, you can return the bin to us and get a full refund if, after three collections, you don’t think the service is for you.
The cost of a bin is only £36 for the year from 1 April. Concessionary rates are available and a second bin is cheaper, if you need one.
