How much will it cost?

We offer a subsidised rate of £20 for two hours for those over 50 residing in Hammersmith & Fulham.

While we will bag up waste from your garden, unfortunately, we are unable to take it with us when we leave as we do not hold a license to remove garden waste. We cannot undertake tree felling or removal of large bushes, etc. We can advise you on how to join the council subscription bin collection service, which will pick up garden waste every two weeks.

We can accept payment by card, cash, or cheque.
