Garden waste collection service
Since the 'Foot and Mouth' outbreak in 2001, the Government has imposed strict controls on composting schemes. If even one bin contains any of the contaminants listed below in the ’No’ column, the garden waste collection vehicle’s whole load will be rejected and will have to be sent to landfill.
Here is a list of what can and can not be put into the brown bin.
|Grass cuttings||Bin liners plastic bags Metal|
|Tree clippings||Animal waste(dog and cat litter) Kitchen waste*|
|Hedge clippings||Large amounts of soil Sawdust/sand|
|Old flowers||Fencing/ posts Ash|
|Bush clippings||Vacuum cleaner dust Cooking oils|
|Old plants||Nut shells garden Chemicals|
|Leaves collected from the garden and green frontages||Leaves collected from street gutters which may include litter, grit/chippings, road salt and asphalt residue|
Kitchen waste means any waste produced within a domestic kitchen. It includes meat/fish (raw or cooked), vegetables/fruit waste or peelings, egg shells and tea bags.
The council currently collects garden waste for composting from approximately 94,000 properties in the borough.
