Garden waste collection

    Overview

    Due to increasing financial pressures, we must make some tough decisions to sustain the overall waste management service. One of these decisions is to charge for collecting garden waste. This came into effect on Monday 28 February 2022.

    This charge is not included or added to your council tax bill. Residents have a choice to opt-in to the service or make alternative arrangements such as composting at home or taking their waste to the nearest recycling centre.

    The new service will provide fortnightly collections over 40 weeks of the year with a suspension outside of growing season of 12 weeks (December to February). This equates to £2 per collection. Garden waste bins will not be emptied without a valid subscription and displayed permit.
