*Households can have an unlimited amount of bins.

The collection period will be from 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015.
Once you have paid you will receive alternate weekly collections all year round apart from December, January and February when collections will be once a month, due to the lack of green waste at this time of the year.

*Please note: there will be no collections from week commencing December 8 through until week commencing January 19

On collection day:

Please place your green bin at the edge of your property nearest the roadside where it can be seen clearly by 7.30 a.m. on your collection day. (Find out the day of your green bin collection.)

Please make sure the lid is closed fully. Our lifting equipment can damage the bins if the lid isn't shut properly. Try not to overfill the bin - we might be unable to get everything out or it might become too heavy to lift. We run an assisted collection service for people with disabilities.

Where does my green waste go?

All the green waste collected from across the district is taken to a local composting facility where it is turned into compost that is suitable for agricultural use.
