Garden waste

Garden waste can be recycled at home in your food and garden bin or in a home compost bin

This includes:
• Flowers and plants
• Leaves
• Grass cuttings
• Hedge clippings
• Twigs and small branches
• Weeds (no Japanese Knotwood or Himalayan Balsam)

You can take garden waste (no soil or food waste) to a Recycling Centre


Any garden waste produced by tradespeople or gardeners you hired to carry out improvements or maintenance to your garden is classed as business waste and can’t be disposed of at any of our Recycling Centres. Always ask a tradesperson to include waste disposal in their quote.
