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.
Since 1 September 2014 we have introduced
changes to the household waste permit scheme. Find out more here

collection, you will receive an invitation to re-join the scheme as
well as information on your collection dates. If you haven't

The first collections for the season will be during the week
starting 2 March / 9 March and final collections are scheduled to
be during the week starting 23 November / 30 November (depending on
where you live).
