Recycling saves energy and resources and prevents the need for landfill. This can help prevent global warming. After your garden waste is collected it is taken to a central composting facility.
Please ensure that your brown lidded bin is out on the kerbside by 7.30am on your collection day. Your brown lidded bin will be collected every two weeks in the summer and every four weeks in the winter.
A leaflet detailing the collection dates has been distributed to each household in the kerbside collection area. If you haven’t received one, please phone the Environment Services Helpline on 01738 476 476.
