We offer a green bin collection service for grass, flowers, plants, leaves, clippings, cuttings, weeds and other garden waste.

You can take out an annual subscription and we'll empty your bin every two weeks. If you don’t subscribe, your green bin can’t be emptied by our crews.

Collections run from 5 March 2024 to 6 December 2024

Why we charge for green bin collections

The money we receive from central government has reduced year on year and has affected the services we can provide. There is now not enough money to support a free garden waste collection and instead of shutting the service down we still offer it for a small fee.

Green bin permits

When you subscribe, we’ll send you a permit in the post, it can take up to 14 days to arrive. Please attach the permit under the handles at the back of the bin.

Recycle or try composting

You can take your garden waste to one of our community recycling centres or you could try composting.

Please don’t put garden waste in your black bin

This waste needs to be put in your green bin so it can be recycled or composted. We won’t empty black bins with garden waste in them.
