Garden waste uplift

We have introduced a new charging policy for special uplifts, however garden waste remains free of charge and is available throughout the year.

Garden waste uplifts will not be provided between Monday 26 December 2016 and Friday 6 January 2017. Requests can still be made however please note that requests received after 16 December 2016 may not be completed until after week commencing Monday 9 January 2017.

We'll tell you which day we will collect the garden waste in your area. You should leave it out at the collection point before 7am that day. This special uplift service for garden waste allows us to recycle as much material as possible.

Bag it or tie it in bundles that are no more than six feet long. For safety, items/bags must be able to be lifted shoulder high by one person.

Garden waste includes clippings from grass, hedges, trees and shrubs but does not include rubble or fences.
