Garden wastegarden waste

Garden waste collection service

You can sign up online to the subscription service to collect garden waste. If you prefer, you can take your garden waste to a household waste recycling centre External Hyperlink or try home composting (see the composting guide External Hyperlink). You must not put garden waste in your refuse or recycling bins.

The service

The service collects garden waste, such as grass cuttings, hedge trimmings and prunings; including small branches up to 75mm in diameter. Turf and soil are not accepted. No vegetable peelings or other waste from the kitchen is accepted.

What happens to the material?

The waste is taken away to be composted into soil conditioner called Pro-Grow External Hyperlink. You can buy Pro-Grow from Household Waste Recycling Centres. Unfortunately regulations about Foot and Mouth Disease do not allow our garden waste collection service to include vegetable 

Garden waste being compostedand fruit peelings from your kitchen. You can compost uncooked kitchen waste in a home composter.

If you would like more information, please email or telephone us on 01329 236100.
