Garden waste terms and conditions

This page gives details of the terms and conditions of our garden waste collection service.


To keep all our rubbish and recycling collections going through the Coronavirus outbreak, our 2020 garden waste scheme is collected on Saturdays and Mondays.

Dates are available on MyDurham.

From your feedback, we understand that you do not want this year's late start to the scheme to create December collections. This means there will only be 15 collections this year not 17. While there will be no refunds, existing customers who sign up for the annual scheme in 2021 will only be charged £30.90 per subscription for the year. New customers will have to pay the full amount of £35 per subscription.

Garden waste in the Teesdale area is collected by Teesdale Conservation Volunteers (trading as Rotters). Rotters arrangements are separate to ours.

The following areas define the expectations and limitations of the Garden Waste Collection Service in line with our Icon for pdf Refuse and Recycling Collections Policy (PDF, 340.1kb) .
