What goes in the garden waste bin?

If you sign up to have your garden waste collected we will give you an extra bin with a brown or black lid. You can put the following in it:

  • leaves
  • grass cuttings
  • twigs
  • hedge trimmings
  • prunings
  • weeds
  • cut flowers.

You cannot put soil, tree branches, rubble or food waste in this bin. Food waste can be composted or put in your general waste bin (with the red lid).

If you need a compost bin or kitchen caddy you can get one from Get Composting at a discounted price.

Other items, or where you have a lot of waste from a garden clearance, can be taken to the recycling centre (tip). For information on recycling centres(tips) in our local area take a look at the county council website.

If you need a new bin because it is damaged or broken please contact us:
