All garden waste collected separately will be delivered to our contractor to produce compost.
This will not be sent to the Energy Recovery Facility (ERF).
We understand that you may have excess garden waste, however, we will only be able to collect garden waste that fits into your usual container.

The re-useable sacks, and wheeled bins, are of a size and weight that can be safely managed by our crews.
If you have space in your garden, the most environmentally-friendly way of dealing with grass cuttings and hedge trimmings is to home compost.

This can be as simple as putting all your cuttings in a neat pile in a corner of the garden. Mix with small amounts of paper, cardboard and vegetable peelings to create a pile that will break down within a few weeks to create great compost that can be reused in the garden.

​Please do not put cooked food waste into your home compost heap.

Alternatively, we ask residents to store any additional green garden waste in their garden until their next collection.
Due to the current crisis we will not be able to offer a re-collection service for garden waste. If you present your waste incorrectly we will not collect it.  ​

We are continuing to review all waste management options to deliver the best possible service during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
