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
Garden waste collections 2015
*Special Mid-season offer - only
From Tuesday 4th August, customers who subscribe to the Kerbside
garden waste scheme will be able to join for the special offer
price of £10 instead of the current annual fee of £26. This
offer is available to residents who live in areas currently
serviced by the scheme. Once payment has been received we
will arrange for delivery of the bin. You can then put it out
once per fortnight on the garden waste collection day for your area
giving you a maximum 9 possible collections (depending on when you
pay, when your bin is first emptied and which area you live
in.) Your garden waste will then join the tonnes
of garden waste we already collect to be made into soil
If you like the service after you have tried it for this season,
we would very much like you to accept our invitation in February
2016 of subscribing for that full year, when we will also be
inviting current members to renew.
In mid February 2015, , if you had already subscribed to
the garden waste collection, you should have already
received an invitation to re-join the scheme as well as
information on your collection dates. The first collections for the
2015 season started 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).
If you are an existing garden waste customer and
cannot locate your reference number to make payment, please contact
the council by calling 0345 600 6400 and provide
your postcode and house
name/number so we can provide this for you.
