Please use your green bin for garden and food waste only. Do not over fill your bin. The bin will only be emptied if the lid is firmly down and not excessively heavy (bin should not exceed 100 kilograms). No additional bags will be taken.
Place your green bin at the edge of your property, where it meets the public highway, by 7am on your collection day. Please do not put it out before 7pm the night before collection.
We collect grass cuttings and weeds, hedge clippings and prunings, leaves and bark, plants and cut flowers, twigs and small branches (no wider than your wrist), and animal bedding from herbivore pets (e.g. rabbits). We do not collect soil or turf.
Additional green bins
There is no limit to the number of green bins that a property can present for collection but they must be Warwick District Council green bins.
Alternatively, garden waste can be taken to Princes Drive and Cherry Orchard Recycling Centres or composted at home.
Composting uncooked food and garden waste at home is a great way to reduce waste going to landfill and it provides you with a free soil conditioner.
Warwickshire County Council is offering subsidised compost bins to Warwickshire residents from £10. They can be collected from recycling centres or delivered to your home. Visit www.warwickshire.gov.uk/composting or phone 0844 571 4444 for more information.
