Garden waste collections

SKDC's Garden Waste service is now closed for new customers.

However, garden waste collections continue on a monthly basis until the start of March, when they become fortnightly again.

The council's service is an easy way to save time, money and hassle, with no need for trips to the tip or to mess up your car with bags of garden waste.

You pay just one annual fee and there is no limit to the number of garden waste bins you can buy.

Last year more than 28,500 customers joined the service.

Existing customers will be invited to re-join the scheme in early 2023, when new customers will also have the opportunity to sign up. 

If you have any questions, please take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions below.

We have recently changed the garden waste rounds to make them more efficient and reduce our carbon footprint.
