Garden waste uplift




We have introduced a new charging policy for special uplifts, however garden waste remains free of charge.

If you have garden waste to get rid of we can collect it if you fill out the online uplift request form or contact us at the number below.

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. A separate uplift service operates for garden waste to allow 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.
