Brown bin garden waste service

You can subscribe to the Brown bin garden waste collection service with its fortnightly collections.

Brown bins are available for households with a current collection service for a standard grey or green wheelie bin.

  • You can request up to two standard 240-litre brown wheelie bins to recycle domestic garden waste.
  • We collect brown bins every two weeks, with a winter break.
  • All the waste is turned into organic material. That is then put to a range of industrial and commercial purposes.
