Garden Waste Suspended

We are extremely grateful for the kind words we’ve had about our waste collection crews. They really appreciate them, and the thank you cards and messages left on bins, as they work hard to maintain the service.

Unfortunately, due to reduced staff levels, we have taken the decision to suspend garden waste collections to prioritise collecting general waste, food waste and recycling.

This means that if your garden waste brown bin is out for collection, please take it in off the street until we are able to restart the collections – please check our website and social media (Twitter and Facebook) for updates.

If you don’t already, and you have the space, you could start home composting your garden waste.

We will continue to collect your blue, green and food waste as planned, however if your bins are not collected on your usual allocated day, please leave them out and we will get to them as soon as we can.
