If you haven't got round to renewing your subscription, or signing up for the first time, you can still do so anytime by visiting or calling 01597 827465.

The garden waste recycling collection service provides an easy, clean and simple way of getting rid of your garden waste, with the knowledge that it will all be collected, recycled and turned into compost.

The annual subscription of £37, includes the hire of a 240-litre wheeled bin and fortnightly collections of your garden waste between 1 March and 3 December which, following resident's feedback, includes more collections than last year. A smaller 120-litre bin is available at a reduced rate for households with small gardens, or compostable garden waste sacks for those who have their residual rubbish collected in purple bags.

If you are re-subscribing for another year, you will receive a sticker to place on your green wheeled bin to help indicate to the crew that you have signed up for the 2021 collections. New subscribers to the service will have their green wheeled bin delivered by the council within 10 working days, so make sure you sign up early to benefit from as many of the scheduled collections as possible.

Cllr Heulwen Hulme, Cabinet Member for Recycling and Waste, said: "With the start of British summer time nearly upon us, the longer days will allow many of us to get outside and enjoy our gardens once again.

"The easy, clean and simple collection service is a great way to conveniently get rid of all your garden waste in the knowledge that it is being recycled into compost here in Powys."

You can subscribe now by visiting or by calling 01597 827465.

To improve the efficiencies of the rounds we have made some day changes so please check your collection day on your sticker or visit
