Internet Explorer is no longer a supported browser by Microsoft and we do not test or configure our website for use with unsupported browsers, therefore we recommend using one of the mainstream web browsers which are supported and updated regularly such as Google Chrome or Edge.

Please note that there may be a delay in receiving your garden waste sticker(s) but please be reassured that you will receive them before the new season starts in April

Customers who are signed up to the service for 2021/22 collections will recommence on Monday 21st February until end of March 2022.

Payment lines for the 2022/23 collection year will open online on 7th February.

Grass cuttings, leaves, hedge and shrub trimmings, weeds and plants can all go in the brown bin.

Garden waste must not be bagged, it should be placed loosely into your brown bin. We also do not accept garden waste as side waste alongside your bin.

Top tip: To try prevent grass cuttings from getting stuck at the bottom of the bin you can place a small amount of newspaper in the bottom of your bin as a liner.

Bin charges:
New and/or replacement bins will be charged at £25 each. Any bins damaged during the collection process may be replaced free of charge.

If you don’t have a large garden, an alternative way to deal with your garden waste is home composting. Click on this link for more information getcomposting.com or you can take your green waste to one of the County Council’s Household Waste Recycling Centres.
