We ask for applications for garden waste collections to be submitted during February. If we confirm we are able to collect from your area, you will be given a unique reference number that is needed to pay for the service.
Putting the wrong materials in your garden bin will mean we may not empty it, and no refund or partial refund will be made.
If your garden waste collection was missed, you can report it to us online.
Before reporting a missed collection, please:
Compost/soil conditioners can be bought from our HWRCs for about £4 per bag (2022 price). If there are none available at the time of your visit, bags can be ordered with expected delivery to the site between two to three days.
The compost is made from garden waste collected through our garden waste collection scheme.
Residents can buy compost in bulk from James Enderby (01434 602786 or 07717 416643). James will offer you a quote on the basis of time and distance. You can also visit the DJ and SJ recycling website by clicking here.
