Village garden waste skips

Village garden waste skips are being provided in villages that used to have a garden waste skip scheme provided by a private contractor.

How can I join the garden waste skip scheme?

If your village previously had a garden waste skip provided by a private contractor, you can request to join our household garden waste scheme by contacting your parish council. You can find out which parish you are in by entering your postcode in the postcode property search.

Why do I need to get in touch with the parish council?

We need to have an 'agreement' established between ourselves and the parish council where the skip is to be placed.

What happens once the garden waste skip scheme agreement is in place?

We will arrange for a skip to be in place, at an agreed location, for two weeks each month, or until the skip is full. The garden waste skip scheme runs from April through to October.

What can I put in the household garden waste skip?

You can put leaves, grass, twigs, clippings, roots, shoots and weeds into the skips from your garden.

How often will the garden waste skip scheme be reviewed?

The scheme is reviewed annually by the Services Portfolio Holder.
