From garden waste to compost

Turn your garden waste into high quality compost by signing up for the council’s fortnightly garden waste collection service. Unwanted waste such as cuttings, leaves, twigs and grass is collected from the front of your property – an environmentally friendly way to dispose of your garden waste this spring, saving you a trip to the recycling centre.

Once collected, your cuttings are recycled into high quality compost. The council does not accept garden waste in the normal household food waste and other refuse collection.

Across the borough, more than 13,000 residents are already using the council’s garden waste service including occasional gardeners who also benefit from the service by taking out a joint subscription with neighbours. Subscribers can choose between using green bags or a green wheelie bin.

If you are an existing customer, your current subscription will not automatically renew and the annual payment is required when you sign-up.

Annual subscriptions are £90.40 with concessionary rates of £69.10 available for those aged 65 or over and those on means tested benefits.

How to sign up or renew

It is quick and easy to sign-up and make card payment online using the council’s My Account customer portal.

Go to www.ealing.gov.uk/myaccount to register a new account or sign in to your existing account and fill in the garden waste collection service form.

If you require assistance to pay online, you can visit your local library where a member of staff will be happy to help you, or call customer services on 020 8825 6000. The phone line is open 9am to 5pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 10am to 5pm on Wednesday.

Making a payment

You need to sign-up or log-in and make payment for the 2023/24 service year as soon as possible, by 30 April latest, to ensure that you benefit from the maximum number of collections throughout the year and do not experience any interruptions to your service.
