Garden waste collection service

If your refuse and recycling collections are made by our small waste collection vehicle we are unable to offer a garden waste service.

Service update - 22 March 2022

Due to an increase in COVID-19 cases among our garden waste drivers and crews, we are experiencing delays with some garden waste collections. Please check back here or on our social media pages for more updates

Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions about the Garden Waste Collection Service disruption page which has been set up to help answer and questions you might have.
