Visitor and leisure
We provide a garden waste collection service running from July 1st to June 30th. You can opt in for garden waste collections part way through the year but there is no reduction to the cost and subscription will end on June 30th. The fee is £36 for your first bin. You will be provided with a sticker to place on your bin, which indicates to the bin collectors that you have paid for the service.

Garden waste can be taken to the county council’s Household Waste Recycling Centres at Great Northern Terrace.
