Collection days

To ensure a problem free collection service please ensure your bin is presented at your property boundary by 7am on your collection day.

Do not overfill your bin or leave additional garden waste next to the bin as this will not be collected.

Where your garden waste goes

Your garden waste is collected separately to your other household waste and recycling and is used to produce compost for the horticulture industry.

Do you live down a road or lane with limited access?

Limited access to a few roads or lanes in the borough may mean our contractor cannot collect from some addresses so please do check with us first if you think this might be the case where you live.

You can request a text message to remind you of your next collection date by completing the online form
