Your bins

Your green garden waste bin

  • Your green bin is emptied once a fortnight
  • We don’t collect extra garden waste, we will only take what is inside your green bin
  • The lifting arms on our vehicles have a weight limit so if your bin is too heavy we can’t empty it. To avoid this, don’t squash too much waste into your bin and never put any soil or stones in with your garden waste.
  • If you regularly have too much garden waste you can have an extra green bin for £30 a year
