Your property is registered on the software used in the collection vehicle. A new 2023/24 sticker will also be issued for each green bin that you have subscribed for and must be attached as directed. We will not be able to empty the bin if the sticker has not been attached.
Please allow 2 working days from the date you have subscribed for collections to commence. Your 2023/24 green bin sticker will be issued within 10 working days.
If you have not received a 2023/24 subscription sticker within 10 working days of subscribing to the service please report this via your Fylde Council account, email email@example.com or telephone Customer Services on 01253 202599.

Please check that the property you are moving into is registered on the alternative weekly collection of grey and green bins by contacting Customer Services on 01253 658658, and to order and pay for the containers before subscribing to the garden waste collection service.
Please speak to your neighbours, landlord or managing agent to see if they are willing to pay for the shared garden waste collection service before subscribing at the property.
No, the charge is £35 per green bin regardless of when you choose to subscribe
No, the collection crew will only collect the green bin which has the authorised bin sticker attached. Any bins presented with a photocopied sticker or any other unauthorised sticker will not be emptied. If you regularly produce more garden waste than can be accommodated in the subscribed green bin you may wish to pay for the additional container to be emptied.
If you wish to increase the number of green waste subscriptions at your property, please log into your Fylde Council account and follow the process to pay for an additional bin/s using a debit or credit card
The green bin(s) must be left at the property for which you have made the subscription, please do not take the bin(s) to your new address as the subscription is not transferable. If you are moving to an address in the borough and the property has already subscribed, you do not need to do anything. If you want to join the service at your new address please subscribe and make payment via a debit/credit card
In accordance with Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 you have 14 days from acknowledgement of the terms and conditions to request a cancellation of service. We are unable to offer a refund after this 14 day period expires
No, if the bin has not been emptied this may be because it contains the wrong items, was presented after 7:30am or was too heavy to be safely handled by the collection crew. In the unlikely event that the bin has been missed please notify us within one working day and where possible we will aim to return within 48 hours.
The green waste service is entirely optional. If you have chosen not to subscribe to the service, green waste can be composted at home, further information on Lancashire County Council’s home composting scheme is available at www.getcomposting.com Alternatively, green waste can be taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centre (Saltcotes Road, Lytham)
No. The subscription is made per bin and additional waste will not be collected, however an extra bin can be ordered and further subscription can be paid for if you are regularly producing large quantities of green waste. Please note we are unable to collect any green bins that overloaded or toll heavy to safely manoeuvre
No. The Council operates a strict no side waste policy and the bin must be presented for collection with the lid closed. Applications for an additional grey bin will not be considered for the disposal of green waste, if you wish to apply for an additional grey bin please do so via your Fylde Council account
