What you can and can't put in your garden waste bin
Garden waste collections resuming
Garden waste collections will resume on Monday 20 April
Your collection will take place on your normal collection day which can be found here. Please make sure your bin is out by 7am.
Please don't overload your bin, as we cannot lift bins that are too heavy.
We will not be collecting any extra garden waste so please save it for the next collection.
Any missed bins should be reported via my.hastings.gov.uk
An extra month has been added to your garden waste subscription, to compensate for the recent suspended service.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
