If you live in a house or converted flat with a garden, we can give you a green reusable bag and collect garden waste every week.
Unfortunately, at the moment, we do not provide a collection service to ground floor properties in blocks of flats.
Garden waste will only be collected in the council's reusable bags. A maximum of 2 bags can be given to each household and left out for collection each week.
Where possible, please home compost your garden waste. You can get a low cost compost bin from the council and Recycle Now have published some useful advice on home composting.
You can put any of these items into your reusable bag:
We cannot take these items as green garden waste:
- stones, soil bricks or rubble
- Japanese knotweed
- household or kitchen waste
- plastics and metals
- dog or cat waste
- any other rubbish

What happens to the waste?
Your garden waste is taken to a local composting site. Millions of tiny microbes break down the garden waste. This heats it up and turns it into compost. After around three months the composting process is complete.
Other ways of disposing of your garden waste
You can also get a low cost compost bin from the council or drop off your garden waste at The Reuse and Recycling Centre.
