Garden Waste Wheeled Bin Scheme

It is important to look at other ways of managing our waste and protecting the environment. Recycling garden waste has proved an invaluable source in reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.

After paper, garden waste forms a substantial amount of the waste collected. If this is sent to landfill it generates methane gas which adds to global warming. To help make Redcar & Cleveland a cleaner, safer and greener place, the Council provides an alternate weekly waste collection service for properties with gardens.

We are unable to collect any bin containing unsuitable materials. Please ensure that you do not put any unsuitable materials out for collection.
