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.
