What garden waste services do my council offer?
Please note: our garden waste service is currently at full capacity. We have set up a waiting list for those that would like to join the scheme when a space becomes available.
If you would like to go on the waiting list, please email us with your name, address and a contact number. We will then contact you when there is an opening.
Garden Waste Scheme
We can collect garden waste at the kerbside but not at the same time as household rubbish or recycling. Our Garden Waste Scheme is available to everybody in the town but we would always recommend that people consider home composting first as this remains the most environmentally friendly method of recycling green waste.
If you are unable to home compost and want to join the scheme, you can do so for the current annual fee of £66. In return for this fee, you will receive a wheeled bin which will be emptied from your property fortnightly.
Since the scheme was introduced in 2008, we have doubled the amount of garden waste we collect so it's making a massive contribution to increased recycling rates throughout the town. If you would like to take part please contact us now.
Please remember that you can always take green waste to our main recycling centre.
