If you require your garden waste to be collected please place it directly into your green bin and present for collection on your collection day by 7am.

PLEASE NOTE: we will only take away garden waste that is contained in your green garden waste bin.

Can I put garden waste in the brown bin?

Please do not place any garden waste in your brown bin as it can cause problems for the facility that burns and gets rid of the City's waste.

Can I put garden waste in the black recycling bin?

Garden waste can only go in the green garden bin.

PLEASE NOTE: Your recycling bin will not be collected if there is evidence of garden waste in your black recycling bin.
