Garden Waste

From March to November your Garden Waste is collected every other week. December to February we operate a ring and request service for collections.


The national shortage of HGV drivers and covid absences means that we are running behind on our seasonal garden waste collections in some isolated areas. This is down to the limited availability of agency workers as this service is not delivered all year round.


If your garden waste is not collected by the end of the week (Sunday) on the week that it is due for collection, please take your garden waste in and place it back out on the next scheduled collection day. Alternatively, you book a slot at a Household Waste Recycling Centre.


Your waste and other recycling services are not affected. 


We apologise for any inconvenience.
