Garden waste recycling

Please check your new bin calendar carefully

Some householders bin days are changing from October so we can make the collection rounds more efficient. We sent a new calendar and recycling guide on 20 September. Please check yours carefully.


 

Household garden waste collections cost £30 per bin, per year.

To receive this fortnightly service, you will need to sign up and pay. This can be done quickly and easily online with your credit or debit card. Alternatively, call 01993 861025.

You can pay at any point during the year but the £30 annual charge runs from 1 April - 31 March. Register early to take advantage of the maximum number of collections over the year.

If you require a garden waste bin please call us.

Fortnightly garden waste collections

Garden waste collections alternate with household rubbish collections

Please ensure that your wheelie bin lid shuts fully and it is put by the kerbside by 6am on your collection day. For legal and safety reasons, bins must be removed from public paths as soon as possible after collection.

Please put your garden waste directly in your bin. No plastic, paper or compostable bags.
