Sign up for 2021 garden waste collections
It's easy to use - your garden waste will be collected from your home in your green bin every two weeks between March and November.
All of the garden waste we collect is recycled.
The cost of the 2021 green bin service is £56.30.
If you don’t have a green bin or need a replacement, we can deliver one for £26.
Sign up and pay now
To receive all 19 collections, sign up by 4 February (direct debit payments) or 14 February (debit/credit card payments).
If you signed up for the two year service last year, you don’t need to do anything. We will send you further information including your new collection calendar in February
Bin collections in Sheffield will continue as normal throughout the six week national lockdown period and all five of the city's household waste recycling centres will remain open for disposal of waste.
Support is available to help you during lockdown. Visit our website via the button below or call 0114 273 4567.
On 11th January the Hillsborough mobile testing centre will move location to the site of the former Hazlebarrow Primary School (which is a lot nearer to Bradway)

January 5th – The following advertisement for volunteers has been issued by the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The Trust is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to be part of its COVID-19 vaccination programme from January 2021 onwards.
We are looking for Volunteer Stewards to work both at our hospital vaccination centres, and at our large scale site at the Sheffield Arena. This will be a varied role, supporting the vaccine centre with duties including directing and signposting people who attend, informing them about COVID safety measures, handing out information and providing general support to staff working at the site. The role will be an active one and volunteers will need to be mobile/on their feet for the duration of the session. Shifts are likely to be 4 hours long with sites operating 7am-7pm, 7 days a week.
What we are looking for
The project is still in development and therefore we are looking for volunteers who are able to be flexible and respond to the needs of the role as it evolves. Your precise start date is yet to be determined and you may be called upon at short notice. We are looking for individuals who can volunteer for at least 4 hours a week on a regular basis for at least 3 months and who have great interpersonal skills, as this role will be very much about interacting with the public.
Because of the nature of the project and the current national and local restrictions, training and induction will take place online and rotas will be communicated by way of a smartphone app. For this reason we are looking for volunteers who have an email address and access to a computer and smartphone.
If you have additional skills such being able to speak other languages, use of British Sign Language or Basic Life Support Skills, please indicate this on the application form.
At this stage applications are welcomed from those aged 18 and over.
What we can offer
An opportunity to be involved in an important and historic undertaking as well as meeting new people, increasing confidence and the satisfaction of knowing you are doing something worthwhile.
Out of pocket expenses will be provided along with all required training. References will be available for volunteers who attend regularly and commit the required number of hours.
All required PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) will be provided.
We may close the recruitment process if we receive the required number of applications.
On application you will provide your details and indicate your availability. If you are shortlisted you will be asked to provide ID documents for identity and DBS checks. An individual COVID-19 risk assessment will be conducted for each volunteer and you will undertake the Trust’s mandatory training before commencing in role. You will also need to provide details of referees and complete an Occupational Health questionnaire.
January 1st 2021 – A new year, but not much that is different from last year. We remain in Covid Tier 3 – for today at least – with the possibility of witnessing cascades of refugees from the Derbyshire Tier 4 arriving across Tinkers Corner to benefit from e.g. our hairdressers still being open.
BAG will continue to work within the constraints imposed, and as they change. The Christmas lights around the shops on Twentywell Lane will come down; the path clearing team will still do their distanced best; planning applications will still be monitored; and plans will still be prepared for the Fun Day in September.
Let’s hope that we survive to see those plans come to fruition.
