Additional Garden Waste (Brown Bin) Collection Charges 2017

From 1st April 2017, Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council has implemented a one brown bin per household policy. Households can request that additional brown bins for excess garden waste continue to be collected, however this service is now chargeable. If you have more than one brown bin this change will affect you.

Your brown bin should be primarily used for food waste and garden waste. Food waste is not permitted in landfill bins from 1st April. Additional garden waste can be recycled free of charge at your nearest Household Recycling Centre which are located at:

  • The Cutts, Derriaghy, BT17 9HN
  • Drumlough, Dromara Road, Hillsborough, BT26 6QA
  • Carryduff, 8 Comber Road, BT8 8AN

Alternatively Home composters are available from the Council for £10*

The collection period for the additional garden waste bin is from 1st April to 31st  March and renewed annually each financial year. A £50 charge per annum or part thereof will apply for each additional bin. If you need an additional bin supplied, a cost of £25 will apply. 

From 1st June 2017, additional brown bins which do not display a Paid collection bin sticker will not be collected.
