Brown bin waste collection set to resume

Brown bin garden waste collections will begin again across the city next month. The collections will start from Monday, March 7 and will take place fortnightly until the end of November. Brown-lidded bins are for cooked and uncooked food waste and garden waste such as grass clippings, hedge cuttings, small branches and plants.

Residents should put their brown bin out with their usual blue recycling bin collection. The garden waste service had traditionally run from April to October but the new coalition have now extended that from March to the end of November.

This decision was made by the Conservative-Independent administration at the City Council late last year, based on feedback from residents who told us they were still cutting grass and collecting leaves and needed it to continue.
