Access to your council tax and benefits accounts will be unavailable 6pm on Thursday 17 August. You will still be able to report environmental issues at this time. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Garden waste that is sent to landfill is harmful to the environment, rotting to produce greenhouse gases such as methane. The council does not collect garden waste as part of your weekly refuse collection.
To dispose of garden waste, you can subscribe to the garden waste collection service and have your garden waste conveniently collected from your home each fortnight. It is then recycled and turned into compost.
Garden waste can also be taken to the re-use and recycling centres, where it is also turned into compost.
Alternatively you can have a go at composting at home.
