Simply visit the new-look website www.sholland.gov.uk/gardenwaste and complete a four-step process to secure your collection.
The service has been approved to go ahead for a trial period of two years and the first collections will take place in April 2016. The areas of the district covered in year one of the trial are parts of Spalding, Holbeach, Crowland, Long Sutton, Sutton Bridge and Donington.
Householders currently not in the pilot area can still enter their properties details and be added to a waiting list.
If you don't have internet access you can call or pop in to our customer service centre at our offices in Priory Road, Spalding.
The pilot scheme is initially only offered to 2,500 households so subscriptions will be on a first come first served basis.
Householders are encouraged to register their interest as the pilot areas will then be extended based on demand for the scheme.
Once households have successfully signed up to the scheme a brown wheeled bin will be delivered to their households. Collections will then commence in April.
A high demand for the service is anticipated and given that spaces are limited, residents are being urged to sign up right away to avoid being placed on a waiting list.
Cllr Roger Gambba-Jones, portfolio holder for waste management, said: "We are committed to helping residents recycle and believe that this scheme represents excellent value for money.
"I would urge anyone interested in signing up to do so straight away on February 15 to avoid disappointment."
The scheme will see a total of 250 daily kerbside collections on a two-week rota.
This will be split between areas of Spalding one week and Holbeach, Crowland, Long Sutton, Sutton Bridge and Donington the next week.
There will be an initial charge of £49 for 24 collections a year and an initial one off charge of £15 to cover extras including delivery and lease of the bins.
Residents wishing to participate on an ad hoc basis or those living in a property which isn't suitable for a wheelie bin can purchase paper sacks.
