Additional green bins and permits
We are unable to process requests additional green bins (organic) as the permit year has nearly run out (30 September 2021). Additional green bin permits can be purchased from 1 October 2021. We apologise for any inconvenience. Additional green bins already subscribed will still be collected.
Every household in South Cambridgeshire is entitled to 1 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 3 green bins, which we'll empty along with your first green bin. The fees for extra green bins are:
- £40 from 1 October 2021 for each additional bin
You may subscribe and pay for permits at any time but we will charge the full amount. There are no discounts or concessions.
Once you have paid for your bin(s) permit(s) you will receive a permit within 14 days. It's important you stick this on the back of your bin so the collection crew can see it has been paid for and know to empty it.
Bins remain the property of South Cambridgeshire District Council.
New additional green bin
Please check back on Friday 1 October 2021 to order additional green bins.
Change of circumstances
Please email email@example.com if you change address or have any questions about your additional green bin or permit.
