No, the period of collection runs each year from 1 April to 31 March. The full annual charge for joining the service is payable regardless of joining date. The cost of the service is now £30 for a single bin if paid by direct debit, or £33 otherwise, and for any additional bin £15 if paid by direct debit, or £16.50 otherwise. 

If you do not already have a green bin then you would need to buy one from us when you join the scheme.
