Garden waste

Please note that garden waste collections are suspended from 29 December until 12 January to make up for the extra recycling generated over Christmas.

Waste collections in bad weather

If any bins are missed due to poor weather conditions such as snow or flooding whilst the Christmas collection schedule is in place, we will empty them the next time that kind of waste is scheduled to be collected.
