Check your collection day


The Garden Waste Scheme will cost £49 for 24 collections throughout the year on a fortnightly basis (with the exception of the Christmas period) plus a £15 charge to cover delivery, repairs and loan of the bin, newsletters and further offers.

Purple plastic sacks can be provided to properties not in the area of the Garden Waste Scheme to be collected by the refuse freighter.

The charge for paper and purple sacks is the same, £15 for 10 sacks (plus £5 delivery). 

Wheeled bins, paper sacks or purple sacks will be delivered within 10 working days of a successful application.

Do NOT:

  • dump it in a dyke, field or on the roadside (flytipping)
  • present garden waste for collection in domestic black sacks as it will not be taken;
  • have a bonfire that has a detrimental impact on the environment. Please see bonfire advice https://www.sholland.gov.uk/article/5657/Bonfires
