A-Z of waste & recycling
Answer all your Waste and recycling questions.
The new kerbside bulky green waste service is very similar to the previous service and assists with the removal of older material and weeds the previous service was unable to offer.
Council is currently undertaking a review of the process with the aim to ensure it is flexible and easy to use. Further information on the outcome of the review will be available February 2021.
The following table shows the changes to the service:
|PREVIOUS Booked Waste Service Kerbside Chipping Requirements||CURRENT Booked Waste Service Collection Requirements|
|1 – 3 metres long||1.5 metres long|
|Maximum diameter of 15 cm||Maximum diameter of 15 cm|
