Garden waste collection
also known as: Compost, Green waste.
Gardeners in the county, keen to compost their waste, can join the garden waste kerbside collection service. When you join, you will receive a 240 litre wheeled bin which will be collected fortnightly from the edge of your property from March through to November. There are no collections in December, January or February due to the limited amount of garden waste produced.
From 1 September we are introducing changes
to the household waste permit scheme. Find out more here
Check when your garden waste bin is collected
The collection dates and the price for 2014 have now been
finalised. Previous subscribers to the scheme will receive their
invitation to re-join for this season in Mid February. The cost
this season is £24 and 20 collections are offered. If you have not
received your letter by the end of February then please let us
know. The first collections for the season are during the week
starting 3 March / 10 March and final collections are during the
week starting 24 November / 1 December (depending on where you
live). Customers will receive that information in February 2014
along with their invitation to re-join the scheme.
Please note that there may be a small time delay between you
subscribing for this service for the first time, and your house
appearing on the collection calendar.
