Garden waste is collected less often in the winter, on a 4 weekly basis. The amount of garden waste collected during October-December drops by 3,500T in comparison to the months of July-September.

This is despite the ‘leaf fall’ period during this time. Therefore, garden waste collection frequency reduces in November.

A winter garden waste calendar will be made available on request to C2C.

It will also be on the website
