Bins & Waste

Garden Waste Collections

The new garden waste subscription service started on 1 April 2024. If you have not paid for the new service, your garden bin will no longer be collected.

For residents that have subscribed, the day and schedule that your garden waste bin is collected will not change. Please have your bin out ready for collection before 6.30am on the day, as collection times may vary with the implementation of the new service.

Please allow 2 weeks for us to process your subscription, add you to our systems and send out your subscription sticker. Once you are added to our systems, you will be included on the collection rounds.

Our Commercial Waste services offer a reliable skip service. This is for residents and businesses across the district. We are competitively priced and fully compliant.

As a Waste Collection Authority, we can provide a variety of ways to collect waste from customers.

Skips have now been added to our inventory. When you contact us, our expert staff will advise you of the best method of collection that will suit your needs.

We have full public liability, waste carrier licensed and ISO 9001 accreditation.
