Garden waste, like food waste, is collected every week and each household has been provided with green garden sacks. Other garden sacks can also be used.
Covid-19 Update - Our crews are struggling to collect the huge amounts of green waste being put out at the moment (grass cuttings, hedge trimmings and leaves. NO soil or stones please). This is having an impact on our rounds, so we need to limit green waste to a maximum of 4 sacks per household. Thank you for your ongoing support.
Garden waste sacks
Green garden waste sacks are available to purchase at £3.06 per bag. Please call Waste Strategy and Operations on 01443 866533 to place your order and make the payment.
What can I put in my garden waste sack?
Your garden waste sack should be used for garden waste such as leaves, dead flowers, grass cutting, hedge cuttings and weeds. Visit what goes in my bins for a more detailed list of what can and can’t be included.
Bulky garden waste
We will not collect bulky garden waste such as trees and branches as part of your weekly collection service. Visit bulky garden waste for options for disposing of these items.
When is the service available?
Our garden waste collection service normally runs all year round.
We no longer offer a subsidised service. Instead, you can purchase compost bins from garden centres, DIY shops and online retailers.
