Garden waste collections take place between 7.00am - 10.00pm on your collection day.

Don’t forget to place any waste fruit from fruit trees in your food waste containers for collection where possible.


If there is too much to fit in your food waste caddy, you can fill your garden waste bag and place out on your black bag collection day only. 


Please clearly label the bag as 'windfall fruit'.

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.
