Brown bin (garden waste)

Your brown bin is for garden waste

You need to subscribe to our garden waste service for your brown bin to be emptied. 

You can put the following garden waste in your brown bin:

  • weeds
  • hedge trimmings
  • small twigs and branches (less than 2.5cm or 1" in diameter)
  • grass cuttings
  • flowers
  • plants
  • fruit and vegetable waste
  • leaves

Put materials into the bins loose. It must all fit in the bin, with the lid closed. Items left outside your bin won't be collected (apart from real Christmas trees in season).

All other materials should be disposed of through:
