Other ways to dispose of garden waste
If you don't want to subscribe and pay for garden waste collections or your property is not eligible for the service, there are other ways to dispose of, or reduce, your garden waste.
These are also useful options if you have garden waste to get rid of when the service is suspended during the winter.
Use a home compost bin
Garden waste such as grass cuttings, weeds and old plants are all suitable for home composting. Compost bins are currently available at a subsidised rate.
Take it to a household waste recycling centre (tip)
You can take your garden waste to one of our household waste recycling centres (tips).
Arrange a bulky waste collection
If you are unable to compost or visit a household waste recycling centre, you can have up to six bags of garden waste removed as a bulky waste collection. There is a charge for this service.
