Garden waste collection

Sign up to our household garden waste collection service to receive fortnightly collections. You'll be pleased to hear that prices for 2020-21 will remain the same as the previous year.

The garden waste collection service is a convenient and cost-effective way of disposing of your green waste and the wheeled bin makes it easy to move from the garden to the point of collection. It is also great for the environment as your garden waste is turned into compost.
