How and what can you recycle in 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.

How to recycle your Green Waste:

  • 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.

  • ONLY green waste can be placed into 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.

  • 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.
