Published on Thursday, 7th November 2019

We are pleased to announce that on the 18th November you can pre-purchase your 2020/21 green waste sticker for the upcoming 12 month period starting Monday 3rd February.

We would advise the public not to delay and ensure that you sign up before Friday 17th January to avoid missing collections. Refer to our Green bin FAQ for more information about this service.

Bin hangers will be delivered by crews at the end of November to remind residents of the details of our garden waste scheme and to also advise of bin collection date changes over the Christmas period.

We will be closing applications for our current 2019/20 green bin service from the 13th November.

Glen McGrandle, Head of Waste and Transport Department said:

“It is good that we can continue to provide this environmentally beneficial service alongside composting alternatives. If you have opted into the current years green bin service you can recycle your Christmas tree by chopping it up and placing it in your green bin.”

If you have not opted into the service - we have deals available for composting bins all year around, it’s cheap and just as environmentally friendly.
