If you want to have your brown bin collected, you must apply for a Brown Bin Permit.
Brown bin waste is collected every 3 weeks from March to November. The brown bin should be presented by 7am on collection day. Collection dates will be available via our Waste Collection Calendar from mid February.
If your bin has been missed then please use our self-service missed waste collection form to report this. Alternatively please contact Customer Services on 01259 450000 as soon as possible. We will return to empty the bin as soon as we can.
Plant waste production has peak periods - grass cutting in the summer, clearing of leaves during the autumn, trimming of shrubs before early spring etc.
During these peak periods your bin space may not be enough. On those occasions there are alternatives:
Wet grass smells if left in a closed container. Create an air gap by placing a wedge between the lid and the bin. Leave enough space that will keep the rain out but will still allow the moisture in the grass to evaporate. It is the moisture in the grass that causes the bin to smell. By doing this, it also makes the grass less likely to stick to your bin, making it easier for us to empty.
