Paying for your extra green bin

Every household in South Cambridgeshire is entitled to one green bin for food and garden waste, which we collect fortnightly from March to November and monthly from December to February.

You can pay to have up to a further three green bins, which we'll empty along with your first green bin. The fees for extra green bins are £35 from 1 October 2019 to 30 September 2020 for each additional bin.

You may subscribe and pay for permits throughout the year but we will charge the full amount. There are no discounts or concessions.

You will receive a reminder in September asking if you wish to remain in the scheme and pay for the next year. If you renew in September, the charge for a full year is £35 per additional bin.


We are not currently taking new subscriptions to the additional green bin service, as the current subscription period ends on 30 September 2019. You will be able to sign up for the new subscription period from 1 October, which will last a year.

Please read our terms and conditions for an additional green bin
