Fortnightly garden waste collection
You can opt in for a chargeable, fortnightly, garden waste collection service.
The 2020 to 2021 garden waste scheme runs from 1 April 2020 to 30 April 2021. The scheme usually runs for 12 months but has been extended by one month for the 2020 to 2021 year due to Covid-19.
The 2021 to 2022 garden waste scheme runs from 1 May 2021 to 30 April 2022.
We provide a 240 litre brown wheelie bin. Each year a different coloured sticker is displayed to show you have paid for the current collection year.
Your bin will only be emptied if you are displaying the current year’s sticker.
The last date an order can be placed is the 31 December and you are able to opt in for the next year from mid March.

You can opt in to order garden waste collection if you are:

Garden Waste Sacks
If you do not wish to opt in to the garden waste scheme, then one alternative is using 75 litre compostable garden waste sacks. These costs £1 each. The sacks are a useful alternative when the garden waste bin order form is unavailable between January and March.
Report a broken or missing garden waste bin
If your garden waste bin is damaged or has gone missing then you can report this and request a replacement bin.
