Garden Waste Collections

Garden waste collections have now changed. From March 2014 householders wishing to have their garden waste collected will now need to pay.

Important garden waste information!

Please remember that your garden waste will be collected on the same day as your green-lidded recycling bin.

Collections for garden waste will now take place fortnightly over the winter period (December, January and February) and not monthly.

The Benefits of the Garden Waste Service

  • Collections are all year round.
  • Offers a hassle-free solution in comparison to taking your garden waste to the Local Household Waste and Recycling Site.
  • Offers a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to garden waste disposal.

Why does the Council need to Charge?

Recent tough budget cuts have meant that we have had to review the garden waste collections as it is not a compulsory service.

The Service

Collections for garden waste will now be all year round. They will run fortnightly throughout the year. Collections will take place from brown-lidded bins on the same day as your green-lidded bin. Waste will no longer be taken from green-lidded bins.

All bins should be out by 7am, with their bins lids closed.

No side waste will be taken.

Brown Bin

Charges for the period 10th March 2014 - 31st March 2015 (inclusive)

Residents already in possession of brown-lidded bins (no matter the number) £20

Residents requiring a brown-lidded bin and garden service £25

Additional bins are available at £5 each (inclusive of service charge)

Pricing will be reviewed on an annual basis. The above prices are for the current year only.
