If you pay by direct debit, this should automatically renew and you will receive an email confirming your payment details for 2022. You should double-check your payment details are up to date by logging into your iwight.com account.
If you pay annually by card, the Isle of Wight Council will shortly be sending you an email with details on how to re-subscribe.
The optional fortnightly scheme lets customers subscribe online for a 240-litre wheeled bin or 3 re-usable hessian sacks to be picked up from the kerbside for a total cost of £96 per year, working out at £4 a fortnight. This is a 33% increase on last year’s subscription cost.
Natasha Dix, strategic manager for contracts, waste and environment, said:
“Our garden waste scheme has always been popular and we are encouraging our current customers to make sure they renew annual subscriptions to reserve their space.
“All garden waste collected is composted locally here on the Island and contributes to our national recycling targets.
“Don’t forget you can always sign up first and then share the cost and load with your neighbour. Alternatively, composting at home is always a low carbon option that is great for your veg patch.”
The council will accept all garden waste such as leaves, grass cuttings and sticks. Logs, rubble and soil is not permitted.
