Garden waste collections

About the garden waste service

Our brown bin service lets Rotherham residents have their garden waste collected from the kerbside all year round.

With our garden waste service, you get collections fortnightly for most of the year, dropping to monthly over the winter.

To get your brown bin emptied, leave it at the kerbside by 7am on your collection day. We recommend storing brown bins securely between collections, as the permits are valuable.

See what you can put into your garden waste bin.
