Garden Waste Collections Re-Starting From 4th April For The 2016 Season!
The garden waste collection service will start back up on week commencing Monday 4th April 2016 and run until 2nd December 2016. The garden waste will be collected every two weeks on the opposite week to your refuse collection.
You can put the following items out for collection in your garden sack:
- Grass cuttings
- Hedge clippings
- Tree and shrub prunings
- Small branches
We are unable to collect the following items in the garden sack:
- Large branches/logs**
- Soil and turf**
- Invasive plants (Japanese knotweed, Hogweed, Ragwort)
- Food waste (use your food waste bin)
- Animal waste (small amounts can be put in your wheelie bin)
*Use your wheelie bin
**Take to Household Waste Recycling Centre
Households that have been provided with a green (reusable) garden waste sack and use the scheme, can request and extra bag. If you do not currently have a garden waste sack please contact us and we will arrange for one to be delivered.
We limit the quantity we collect each fortnight to 10 bags. If you have a large quantity of garden waste please put out for collection over a number of weeks.
Once collected, the garden waste is taken to a local facility where it is turned into useful compost soil conditioner.
Garden waste can also be taken to the Household Waste and Recycling Centres in Aberfan and Dowlais.
