How can we help you?

Say goodbye to garden waste for just over £1 a week

For just £53 (paid via Direct Debit) you can take advantage of our popular garden waste service.

Garden waste will be collected every fortnight, all year round, in a 240 litre brown wheelie bin.

You can also rest assured you're still doing your bit for the environment because it's all composted centrally.
