Garden waste collections
Garden waste is collected fortnightly, alternating with household rubbish collections, and your bin should be 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 bags.
