Garden waste recycling
Garden waste collections are suspended over the festive period (25 December – 8 January) so crews can concentrate on picking up extra waste and recycling over Christmas and New Year. For more information see our festive recycling webpage.
Garden waste collections cost £30 per bin, per year and alternate with household rubbish collections.
You can sign up for collections from February 2019, more details to follow nearer the time.
If you require a garden waste bin please call us.
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.
Garden waste should be out directly in your bin. No plastic, paper or compostable bags.
