Make sure you have enough green wheelie bins

Subscribing to the service does not include the delivery of a green wheelie bin.

You will also need to order a green wheelie bin(s) if:

  • You don't already have a green wheelie bin at your property
  • You are paying to have more than one green bin collected, and you need extra green wheelie bins for these collections

What happens after you subscribe

You will get a subscription pack through the post, which will include a letter and sticker(s) for your garden waste bin(s).

Collection dates will no longer be sent out in subscription packs but can be found at bin collection dates.

You can see your collection dates and print off a collection calendar.

If you don't have a printer, the customer service reception team at South Shields Town Hall will print this for you.

You can also print a calendar at public libraries across South Tyneside.

If you subscribe before the 14 February, you will receive your pack by early March.

If you subscribe after 14 February, you will receive your pack within 15 working days.

Your property will also be added to our collection list within 15 working days.


Bin sticker

Your bin must display a sticker.
