What will be collected?

There are no volume restrictions in our green waste verge collections.

Acceptable green waste includes:

  • Piles of green waste consisting of trees, branches and shrubs, or shrub prunings
  • Less than 300mm in diameter
  • Less than 1.5m long
  • Any loose materials such as lawn cuttings, leaves and general green waste need to be placed in cardboard boxes or garden bags, which will be returned to the household to minimise contamination.

Please stack green waste materials neatly on the verge, with the cut ends facing the street and the leaves facing your property.

Green waste must be placed on the verge by 6am on the Monday of your collection date. Late piles will not be collected.

What is unacceptable:

Green waste will not be collected if it falls into the following categories:

  • Large tree stumps greater than 300mm in diameter
  • Branches exceeding 1.5m in length
  • Any contaminated green waste
  • Any junk, general waste, hard waste, recycling material, asbestos, chemicals, gas bottles or any other hazardous material will not be collected.
