Garden Waste Charging

Terms and Conditions

Garden waste permits for 2024's season are now available for purchase. 

Dundee City Council operates a wheeled bin kerbside collection scheme for residential garden waste disposal ('brown bin', 'green waste'). This service is chargeable and is managed through an annual permit system. The permit charge covers 20 collections, made fortnightly, from March each year. Collection crews will only empty brown bins displaying a valid permit sticker that matches the property address and collection year. 

The cost of a permit for 2024 is £45 per brown bin.  

We recommend householders sign up early to ensure permits are received in good time before the first collection date. If you don't already have a brown bin, one can be requested at time of permit purchase. Customers who opted in to the scheme in the previous year will automatically receive invitations to re-apply for the upcoming gardening season.
