Green waste

We offer 2 green (garden) waste collection services:

Green waste premium (fortnightly wheelie bin)

If you sign up to the green waste premium service, we provide a wheelie bin for your garden waste.

If your property is not on the wheelie bin service for non-recycling and recycling, we will provide you with bags instead.

The service costs £96 per year, from 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020.

This bin can be used all year round.

You can use the bin for your (real) Christmas tree, which you need to put next to your brown bin in January.

In previous years, we reduced our green waste collections to 3 per week during the winter season. From winter 2019, the service will not be reduced and we will continue with 5 collections per week, so your collection date will remain the same every fortnight.  

You can check your green waste premium service collection dates online.

Green waste bagged collection

If you book a Green Waste bagged collection, you need to put the waste in your own bag or one of our pre-paid bags, and we will collect it.

If you use your own bag, the collection will cost 95p per bag.

If you use our pre-paid bags, we will collect them for free.

You can buy a roll of 20 pre-paid bags for £19 from the cashier desks at the Civic Centre.
