Composting and garden waste

Garden waste

You can take your garden waste to one of our recycling centres or we can collect it on your garden waste collection day – you can check what day this is by typing your postcode into the check your bin day. We'll give you four reusable plastic bags for your garden waste.

A maximum of four bags will be collected from your property each collection day.

Between 3 April and 2 November we'll pick up your garden waste on the same day as your green bin - check your bin day.


Compost your garden waste at home and you'll have your own soil improver. Get advice from the Royal Horticultural Society, Garden Organic and the Waste Resources Action Programme (WRAP) websites.
