We will collect your garden waste once a fortnight throughout the year, from the front edge of your property if stored in one of these containers. Cardboard will be collected if stored mixed with the green waste in the paper sack or wheeled bin. Cardboard can also be collected free of charge on its own if stored flat in a cardboard box, or tied neatly in bundles with string.
