Garden Waste Service 2022

The price of the garden waste service for 2022 needs to be set in order for the communications to go out to customers ready for registrations to start from 1 October 2021. This year the price per bin is £49 and is recommended to increase by RPI of 3.9%, less the current £4.46 to cover communicated missed collections (pls note this figure may increase if the service is unable to stabilise staffing levels due to recruitment shortages) the service is doing everything it can to address this.

Customers in Poole who have an Access to Leisure and Learning (AtLL) card, currently receive a 50% discount on their first bin purchased. Whilst we acknowledge that keeping this discount does not align the service across BCP Council, it is felt that a wider review of the whole AtLL scheme is required to be undertaken before any changes are made.
