Pilot for Flatted Properties: Garden Waste Recycling

Campaign Launch

This scheme began in March 2005 following last year's success of the garden waste kerbside recycling scheme that was reported in the follow up campaign with the message '3000 tonnes of garden waste have been recycled since the kerbside scheme began'. The decision was made to pilot a similar scheme to flatted properties. The scheme was adapted to make it more suitable for this property type.
Current Scheme Information

Currently around 160 flatted properties in East Renfrewshire have been provided with a biobag for garden waste as detailed below:

  • Flowers and plants
  • Hedge clippings
  • Lawn mowings and weeds
  • Sawdust and wood shavings
  • Small branches and bark


If you want to know more about the scheme, please contact East Renfrewshire Council's recycling helpline on 0141 577 3001.
