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
