We are currently streamlining our processes, which means when we collect your rent via Direct Debit it will have a new account reference. This does not change the way in which we collect Direct Debits. If you pay between 16th – 22nd of the month your October payment will be taken later than planned.

Disposing of bulky garden waste

You are here

A bulky garden waste collection costs £37.50 (prices subject to change).

A collection consists of up to five securely tied bundles (manageable by one person) of garden waste (tree prunings etc.) that are collected from your front garden.

We are unable to take soil, turf, rubble etc. The collection is for compostable waste only, that will not fit in your brown bin.

We will advise you of the collection day when you book, but this is generally the same day as your next scheduled brown bin collection.

To arrange a collection, click on the button below, or get in touch using the contact details provided on this page.

If you are on means-tested benefit such as Pension Credit, Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance (income-based) or Employment and Support Allowance (income related) you are entitled to one free bulky refuse collection a year (either household items or garden waste). Please contact us to check your entitlement.

Don't forget, if you regularly have large amounts of extra garden waste then for just £46.50 per year the Council will provide another 240 litre brown bin (standard household size), which will be collected on the same day as your current brown bin. More details can be found on our second brown bin offer page.
