 Garden Waste Service Update

The council is changing the way green garden waste collections are made. From Friday 29 December 2017 collections of green waste using the pre-paid pre-booked green garden sacks will stop.

You will no longer be able to pre-book ad-hoc garden waste collections after Friday the 22 December 2017.

If you currently have a stock of bio-degradable garden waste sacks please use these up before this date.

In January 2018 only Christmas trees will be collected by the Green Waste Service while the new subscription service is mobilised.

Garden Waste Collection Subscription Service

Green Waste will start to be collected fortnightly from subscribers Monday 5 February 2018.

The annual subscription will operate from April 1 to March 31 each year. Subscriptions received before 1 April 2018 will receive collections in February and March 2018 for free!

Subscriptions

The fortnightly kerbside garden waste collection service gives you the option of selecting either:

  • 1x Large green wheeled bin with a brown lid.
  • 3 x Re-usable garden waste sacks (green)*

*Please note: whilst the stock of green re-usable sacks is being delivered sack subscribers will be delivered a roll of bio-degradable sacks to use fortnightly.

The annual subscription includes the free collection of real (live) Christmas trees in the month of January 2018. Your subscription receipt will be emailed to you, it will contain a link to book your free Christmas tree collection.
