Renfrewshire’s 2024/25 garden waste collection service will begin on Monday 1 April 2024 and residents need to purchase a new permit to ensure they continue to receive a collection for their garden waste.

Permits can be purchased on the council’s website.

If someone does not have internet access, they can call 0300 300 0380, visit their local library to use the public computers to apply online or pick up a paper application form which should be returned with payment to Renfrewshire House. If possible, the online form should be used for all applications.

The cost of the permit remains £40 and the permit will be valid until 30 April 2025.

To ensure that permits arrive in time for the start of the new service, residents should purchase their permit by 11 March 2024. Permits can be purchased after 11 March 2024, but this may lead to a delay in their bin being collected until they receive their sticker.

The permit applies to one bin only so a permit must be purchased for each brown bin a resident wishes to be collected with garden waste inside and additional brown bins and permits can be purchased as required.

Further information on the service is available on the council’s website.
