Garden waste bin

Your garden waste bin is collected fortnightly. Please make sure it is at the boundary of your property by 7am on your collection day.

Please do not overfill the bin. If garden waste is compacted it will stick in the bin and this may result in damage when emptying it. If you put some twigs or dry leaves at the bottom of the bin it will help stop the garden waste from sticking in the bin.

Please do not leave an extra bags of garden waste out by your bin as we can only take garden waste that is in your bin.
