View items that can and can't be placed in your Garden Waste Recycling.

Garden waste is subject to seasonal collection arrangements. It will be collected on your weekly recycling collection day, however during winter (November 1 to March 1) when demand is low, garden waste collections will be fortnightly 

Garden/green waste items should be placed in a clear recycling bag - and not be placed in the same bag as your weekly household recycling.
