Garden Waste Collection
New Garden Waste Collection Service - coming soon!
We are moving to a new garden waste collection service, starting on 1 February 2021 (until 29 January, garden waste collections and the green bag system will operate as normal). Residents will have the option to purchase a new garden waste bin at an annual fee.
After the new service is introduced, waste will only be collected from those that subscribe to take part, and pay the annual fee for the collection. The collection day for garden waste bins will not change and will continue as detailed on your collection calendar from 1 February, but only households who subscribe will receive the service.
The service will give significant increase in capacity over the current bags, and mean that the waste is easier and safer to move, will not be blown away and lost, as is common with the bag system, and keeps the green waste material dry. Compost will continue to be processed in the same way as present, being turned into PRO GROW organic soil conditioner which is for sale on line, or at HWRCs.
