Bin - Green lid (garden)

Residents who subscribe to the garden waste scheme have a 240 litre green lidded bin for garden waste. The green lidded bin is collected each fortnight. The bin should be placed at the edge of your property by 7.00am on your collection day.

What to put in your Green Bin

  • plants
  • weeds
  • hedge trimmings
  • branches (small or broken up)
  • leaves
  • grass cuttings
  • bark
  • bedding from vegetarian pets (e.g. rabbits and guinea pigs)

Garden waste and a recycle logoPlease do not add any items that are not listed above.

Please do not compact and squash your waste into the bin as this prevents it from emptying properly on collection day.

If your waste is stuck inside your green bin and it has not emptied please loosen it before your next collection day.

No bin but I'd would like one

If you do not have a green bin you can Subscribe here to the garden waste scheme and request a bin. Properties must have a grey bin for household waste in order to have a green bin.


I'd like an additional bin

 If you require additional garden waste bins to be emptied you can take out more than one subscription.  The additional bin (s) required will be delivered at no extra cost.  Subscribe here.

Broken/missing bin

If your green-lid bin is broken or has gone missing please complete our online form to order and pay for a replacement bin. There is a charge of £ 16.20 for a replacement green-lid bin.

You can also dispose of your garden waste at a household waste recycling centre.

Help putting your bin out

If you are unable to put your wheeled bin(s) at the edge of your property and there is no-one else in your household over 16 years old who can do so you can apply for an assisted collection, and the refuse collectors will collect and return your bin from the storage point.
