Garden Waste Subscription charge 2024-25

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Environment

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


To inform Members of the current charge made for one garden waste licence and to obtain approval of the charge for 2024/25 to enable the subscription window for renewals to open in January 2024.


In 2024/25:

i) the full year charge for the garden waste collection service is £46.50.

ii) the pro-rata charge applicable to residents in Craven, Hambleton and Ryedale is £42.00

Reasons for the decision:

To enable residents to subscribe to the garden waste service for the 2024 season from early January 2024 this decision was required ahead of the rest of the Environment directorate fees and charges for 2024/25 and an inflationary increase has been applied in line with Council policy

Alternative options considered:

A lower inflationary increase could be applied to the garden waste subscription charge however the garden waste is a discretionary service where waste collection authorities are able to make a charge under the Controlled Wase Regulations 2012. It is therefore considered reasonable to apply an inflationary increase to the current charge.
