Garden waste collection service to resume on 8 June

Published: 02/06/2020

Flintshire County Council is pleased to announce that the garden waste collection service will resume on Monday 8 June 2020 back to fortnightly collections on the normal collection date.


Garden waste is usually collected on the same day as recycling and food waste and alternate weeks to black bin collections.  Please check your calendar or our website ( for your collection day. 


We ask that:


•        your yellow tag is attached to your brown bin;


•         your brown bin is out by 7.00 a.m. on your scheduled collection day; 


•        your brown bin only contains garden waste;


•        no side waste is left out;


•        you clean the handles of your bin before and after collection;


•        you wash your hands before and after touching your bin.


If you have already paid and subscribed for the 2020 collection service, but have not yet received your yellow tag, please attach your payment reference to your brown bin.


If you would like to subscribe for the 2020 garden waste collection service, you can do it online  or by calling our Contact Centre on 01352 701234 from Thursday, 4 June. The subscription rate for the remainder of the year is £24.00 for on-line payments or £27.00 if the payment is made through the Contact Centre.


Residents who had subscribed for the 2020 service prior to its suspension will be offered a £8 reduction in their subscription charge for 2021 in recognition of the withdrawal of collections between March and June. Please appreciate that our Contact Centre is extremely busy at the moment, for example in supporting vulnerable people who are shielding, and that we are not in a position to process requests for an £8 refund for this year. 


More information on charges for the 2021 collection service will be released later this year.
