Cost of Living

With significant rise in the cost of living we know that some households will be struggling financially, emotionally or because they need practical advice and help.

Garden Waste Collections

£45 for the first bin and £20 for every other service after

Payment lines for the 2022/23 collection year opened on 7th February 2022.

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.
