Garden Waste FAQs
Which bin do I use for garden waste?
Residents can use their green garden waste bin to dispose of garden waste.
I don't have a garden waste bin, can I have one?
If your property is a new build and never had bins before this is free of charge, however if a replacement bin is required it is chargeable. Please contact us on 01642 774774 or email the customer services team
I always have extra garden waste for collection, can I have a second garden bin?
Residents that have extra garden waste can present it in clear, biodegradable bags alongside their garden waste bin for collection.
Alternatively, residents can request an extra garden waste bin. Extra bins are chargeable at a cost of £22 per bin.
Why do I only get a garden waste collection from March to November?
To utilise our resources appropriately, we do not offer a garden waste collection to residents when there is minimal or no garden waste due to seasonal change. It is not economically, environmentally and financially effective for us to offer garden collections as the number of residents who will require it are minimal. There are facilities at Dunsdale Household Recycling Centre (HWRC) for garden waste which is open all year round.
