Garden Waste Collection Service
The Council offers a garden waste collection service. This is an opt-in service for residents who would like their garden waste collected from home, using a green wheelie bin. The service includes household garden waste; grass cuttings, leaves, hedge trimmings, flowers, twigs up to 4” in diameter, non-invasive weeds and pet bedding (rabbit or rodent only).
Bulky Household Waste Collections
We can remove your bulky household items (such as chairs, beds, tables, washing machines) from outside your house. Household items cost £25 per collection of up to 8 items, except fridges and freezers which are £25 per item.
