Garden waste collections to resume from Monday

Graden waste - brown binResidents will be able to put out their brown bin on their usual collection day from Monday 11th May.

We've been working to resume the garden waste service as quickly as possible, with some members of staff being redeployed from other services to support our waste teams.

With many restrictions continuing to be in place during the lockdown, and with reduced staffing, we are asking residents to hold on to any additional waste that does not fit into the brown bin, until their next collection. This will help to ensure that we can continue with garden waste collections during this difficult period.

Further information will follow about how residents will be compensated for the six-week break in service. We want to ensure that despite these difficult times, residents get the amount of collections they have paid for.

We are grateful to residents for their continuing patience during this time.

Tetra-pak recycling in black bins

To further support residents, households can now recycle Tetra-paks at the kerbside in their back bin, along with glass, cans, and plastic bottles, tubs and trays.

These waterproof paper cartons often contain multi-layered materials such as paper, plastic, foil and wax. Examples include long-life milk and juice, soups, pasta sauce, tomato and picnic/children's drinks cartons.

Further information about the kerbside waste collections is available on our website
