We hope other services will run as normal. Suspending the garden waste service should allow us to continue collecting other waste and recycling.
How to manage your garden waste during the suspension
Our recycling centres will be open as normal if you’re unable to store your garden waste at home.
We are also going to set up trial drop off sites across the area. This is so existing customers have the option to take their garden waste to drop-off points if they don’t live within easy reach of the recycling centres. These will be announced to customers living in those areas as soon as they are up and running.
Home composting is also a good way to deal with any extra garden waste generated.
We have updated your garden waste calendars to reflect the new collection dates. You can access these here
Other recycling and general waste collection dates will remain the same.
To limit our environmental impact, we no longer print our collection calendars. If you do require a large font or braille calendar, please contact us using the email below.
We all have a responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment and fly-tipping is illegal. Our Waste Enforcement Team will actively pursue all reports of fly-tipping and we encourage residents to come forward if they witness any acts of fly-tipping. Garden waste should not be placed in the black bin and crews may not collect if you do this.
