Garden Waste

If you’d like us to collect garden waste from your home, you can sign up for a garden waste collection subscription. Scheduled garden waste collections run between March and November. If you need a garden waste collection during the winter months, you can request one between December and February.

 

 

If you’d prefer not to subscribe to our garden waste collection service, you can still take your garden waste to your local household waste recycling centre for free or compost it at home.
