Residents across North Yorkshire can now pay for their garden waste licence ahead of this year’s collections starting in March.

A licence for the 2024 season costs £46.50 for garden waste collections between March and early December (existing customers in Craven, Hambleton and Ryedale will pay a reduced price of £42 as they have already paid for their March 2024 collections).

The licence covers one 240-litre wheelie bin to be emptied fortnightly (depending on where they live, some residents may have an equivalent number of compostable liners or sacks/bags). Anyone who would like to have more than one bin emptied can pay for a licence for each additional bin.

Once paid, a licence pack is due to arrive within 14 days.
