Where your garden waste goes

Your garden waste is collected separately to your other household waste and recycling and is used to produce compost for the horticulture industry.

Do you live down a road or lane with limited access?

Limited access to a few roads or lanes in the borough may mean our contractor cannot collect from some addresses so please do check with us first if you think this might be the case where you live.

Text reminders

You can request a text message to remind you of your next collection date by completing the online form
