Residents are being encouraged to meet the 11th March 2024 deadline to ensure they receive their 2024/25 garden waste permit before the new service begins on 1st April 2024.

Residents who purchase a permit will receive a new sticker to be attached to their brown bin which will ensure their garden waste is collected by council crews, with the permit applying to one brown bin at the property only.

The cost of a permit remains £40 and will be valid until 30th April 2025, with additional permits and brown bins available to be purchased as required.

Applications can be made after 11 March 2024, but won’t be guaranteed to be with residents by 1st April 2024 and could lead to a delay in their collection taking place.

Anyone who does not wish to participate can continue to present their brown bin with food waste only, but if garden waste is placed into the bin without a permit, then it will not be collected until it is removed.

Garden waste, such as grass and hedge cuttings, can continue to be taken to any of Renfrewshire’s recycling centres for free or residents can use the council’s special uplift service.
