About garden waste bins

All about our garden waste bin collection service, including how much it costs, how you can apply and when to expect a collection.

Uttlesford green garden waste bin
Having one of our garden waste bins is an easy way to get rid of any garden rubbish that you can not compost.

From the New Year we will be changing when we collect some garden waste bins.

If your collection day is being changed we will write to you.
 

How to join

Anyone living in Uttlesford can sign up for the garden waste collection service.

While we make the changes to our garden waste collection rounds we will not be taking any new applications to join the scheme.

 

When to expect a collection

Garden waste is normally collected every two weeks and is only available to domestic properties.

Your garden waste collection day may differ from your regular collection day so please check your letter for your collection day. Please make sure that the bin is at the boundary of your property by 7am on your collection day.
 

What to put in your bin 

You can put any garden waste loose into the bin. 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 and make it easier for us to empty it.

Please do not out any bags in the bin or leave any extra bags of garden waste out by your bin. We can only take garden waste that is in your bin.

What we collect - please put these items in your garden waste bin

What we can not collect - please don't put these items in your garden waste bin
