Garden waste recycling

What can I recycle?

Using the garden waste collection service you can use your wheelie bin, reusable or biodegradable sacks to recycle:

  • grass cuttings
  • old garden or house plants
  • twigs
  • hedge trimmings
  • weeds and flowers
  • leaves

You are not able to recyle:

  • plastic pots, trays or bags
  • soil, rocks and stones
  • branches
  • tree trunks, stumps or logs
  • vegetable peelings or other food waste (these can be recycled using your green food bin)

Please try not to overfill your containers, as it can make them heavy and difficult to move. 

The council does not accept garden waste in the normal household refuse collection.

Large quantities of garden waste will be accepted free of charge for composting at reuse and recycling centres
