Boston May Fair

Boston Borough Council and the Showman's Guild are pleased to announce that for the first time on Sunday 5th May 11am-1pm the May Fair on Bargate Green Car park and Wide Bargate will be opening without sound. This will enable families with children with additional needs to enjoy the delights of the May Fair without the sensory overload that can sometimes prevent some of them enjoying the experience.

Grass cuttings, leaves, hedge and shrub trimmings, weeds and plants can all go in the brown bin.

Garden waste must not be bagged, it should be placed loosely into your brown bin. We also do not accept garden waste as side waste alongside your bin.

Top tip: To try prevent grass cuttings from getting stuck at the bottom of the bin you can place a small amount of newspaper in the bottom of your bin as a liner.

Bin charges:

If your original brown bin is damaged and you have received a free replacement bin previously, the cost of replacement will be £42.40 and there will be a £10 delivery charge. If you have not received a free replacement before, your garden waste bin may be replaced free of charge at the discretion of the Garden Waste Team.

If your bin falls into the back of the lorry during collection, please email gardenwaste@boston.gov.uk or contact us on 01205 314200 and we will issue you with a free replacement bin.

If you don't have a large garden, an alternative way to deal with your garden waste is home composting. Click on this link for more information getcomposting.com or you can take your green waste to one of the County Council's Household Waste Recycling Centres.
