The online payment system for the 2017/18 garden waste collection service is NOW CLOSED.
Updated Frequently Asked Questions for your garden waste collection service 2017 are published in 'Related Documents' at the bottom of this page.
Updates to your garden waste service will be publicised on the Boston Borough Council website, social media and local press.
The service runs from March to November and then resume in February until end of March and bins are collected fortnightly. If you opt out of this scheme, garden waste MUST NOT be placed in the green bin and should be taken down to the Household Waste Recycling Centre (Slippery Gowt Lane), or home composted (compost bins can be purchased at a reduced price by going online at www.getcomposting.com or by calling 0844 5714444).

What you can put in your brown bin:
- Grass cuttings
- Hedge/tree cuttings
Animal/food waste and vegetable peelings cannot be placed in the brown bin.
- Soil MUST NOT be placed in the brown bin as this cannot be composted and will make the bin too heavy to be emptied
- Garden waste MUST NOT be bagged, please place loosely in your brown bin
- Extra garden waste cannot be placed next to the brown bin, it must all be contained in brown bins.
TOP TIP - To try to prevent grass cuttings from getting stuck at the bottom of the bin you can place a small amount of newspaper in the bottom of your bin as a liner.
