Green Waste Registrations

Recyclable green waste, which includes garden waste and small vegetarian animal waste is collected WEEKLY from mid-March until early November and thereafter FORTNIGHTLY during the winter months.

Green waste will only be collected in green waste sacks from households who have registered. Green waste in clear recycling bags will not be collected.

What do you need to do?

All residents who require green waste collection will need to register for the service.

Within 2 weeks of registering you will receive two free green waste sacks plus any additional sacks you have purchased. 

Additional sacks can be purchased at a cost of £3 each at the time of registering, or at a later date

Did you know?: Each green sack holds 90 litres (45cm x 45cm x 45cm). That's equivalent to two and a half clear recycling bags.

When will my green waste be collected?

Your green waste collection day will follow your recycling collection day in the summer months (March-November) and your black bag/bin collections in the winter months (November-March) - unless you are told otherwise.

Find your waste and recycling collection dates

The service is currently operating at a fortnightly collection schedule and will return to weekly collection from 14th March 2022.

Un-bagged green waste can also be disposed of at your local Community Recycling Centre

How to recycle your green waste?

Simply place green waste into the green waste sack.  On your collection day, put your green waste sack at your usual bin collection point for collection before 7am.

Please note the following:

  • Green waste cannot be placed in clear recycling bags and you must join the scheme for collections to begin

  • If your sack(s) have not been collected it is likely that you are not registered for the scheme and you will need to join the scheme

  • Please do not overfill your green waste sack(s), additional sacks may need to be purchased, if required. Purchase Green Waste Sacks

  • Green waste only can be placed in your green waste sack(s) - if any other waste is present in your green waste sacks such as soil, rubble and wood, it will not be collected.

  • If you do not put out any green waste over 12 collections, you could be removed from the collection round and will need to register again - this refers to collections and not weeks and will consider that collections are fortnightly in the Winter as well as a break over the Christmas period

  • Please do not use sacks acquired from neighbours or friends as they will not be collected. Only properties registered on the scheme will receive a collection

  • Please ensure your green waste sack(s) are out for collection by 7am on the day of collection and take your green waste sacks back in after your collection has taken place.
