Garden waste

Try composting to transform your garden waste into valuable and nutrient rich food for your garden. By composting at home you can save the equivalent amount of carbon dioxide as your kettle produces all year or your washing machine produces over three months.


If you don't home compost or have too much garden waste it can go into your kerbside collection from your local district, borough or city council.

Buy a compost bin and start making your own compost. For more information on making your own compost, visit our composting pages.

Take your garden waste (not tree trunks and branches over 150mm diameter) to the green waste skips at any of our household waste recycling centres.

We do not accept Japanese knotweed, ragwort, Himalayan balsam or other invasive plant species.
