What goes in my garden waste bin?

You should put your garden waste loose (not bagged) in your garden waste bin.

Please remember that we will not collect any waste left beside your bin. You must be able to fit all of your waste inside the bin and close the lid. Find out more about how to put your bins out.


Grass cuttings, hedge clippings, dead plants, weeds, cut flowers, shrub prunings, bark leaves, small twigs and branches.


Stone, concrete, timber or builder's waste, glass, plastic, metal, paper, cardboard, plant pots, soil, turf, household rubbish, and food waste.

Don't forget - if you want your green waste to be collected, you'll need to subscribe for garden waste collections.
