Page last updated at 29 August 2017 at 17:30

Join the thousands of Borough residents who benefit from a fortnightly collection of garden waste from home. 

This recycling service provides a great value for money collection of your garden waste every fortnight direct from your kerbside.  There is also a money back guarantee as part of our ‘buy it and try it’ offer if, after six weeks, you aren’t completely satisfied with the new service.

Some of the key benefits

  • Save petrol and time with fewer journeys to your local recycling centre
  • It is easy to recycle your garden waste, simply fill up your brown lidded green bin and place it out for collection on your collection day and we will do the rest
  • Avoid unwanted 'creepy crawlies' in your vehicle

How does the service work?

When you subscribe to the service you will receive a 240 litre wheeled bin and a welcome pack telling you how the service works and your collection dates for the year.

Your garden waste will be collected on a fortnightly basis, with the exception of the Christmas/New Year period.

Simply put your garden waste in your bin and leave it by the kerbside by 6.30am every fortnight, on your specified collection day.

What can go in your garden waste bin?

Your collected garden waste is taken for composting and turned in to a soil-conditioner called Pro-Grow which you can buy at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.
