Green bin: garden waste

Garden waste is only collected from subscribing households and a valid licence must be attached to the bin.

You will be able to subscribe to this year's garden waste collection scheme from mid January 2019. Full details, including the cost, will be available soon.

If you don't want to sign up to the scheme, you can compost your garden waste at home or take your waste to the tip.
