Green sacks (garden)

Households that are unable to accommodate a wheeled bin are able to dispose of garden waste in compostable sacks.  

We will supply 3 colour coded rolls of 42 sacks per year to those residents who subscribe to the garden waste scheme.   Subscribe here

Your  compostable bags should be put out at the edge of your property by 7am on the day of the fortnightly collection.  

You can dispose of any extra garden waste at your nearest household recycling centre.

I require further sacks

If you require further sacks during the year a second subscription can be purchased. Subscribe here

Storing the compostable sacks

It is important to keep the compostable sacks in a dry place. Because they are compostable the sacks should not be stored in wet conditions. Please visit the 'storage and use' page for further information.

What can I put in the sack?

The following materials can be placed inside a compostable sack:

  • grass cuttings
  • hedge clippings
  • prunings
  • weeds
  • bark
  • plants
  • cut flowers
  • compost
  • vegetarian animal bedding

Please do not include food waste, cardboard, plant pots, stones, soil, plastic or wood.
