Garden Waste Bags 

Your garden waste recycling must be placed in a Council-issued garden waste bag. Garden waste that is placed out for collection in any other container will not be collected.


When filling your bag please exercise common sense as to how full / heavy you fill it. If you struggle to lift it, so will our crews.
