Dudley Skyline

Dudley Council provides a service for the collection of garden waste from each household.

Each household is provided with one green wheelie bin. This bin is for garden waste only.

Please read the following for information about the service, including replacement green wheelie bins and additional, chargeable collections.

Additional garden waste - extra bins and collections

If you have more garden waste than one bin can handle, or you like to garden all through the year, we offer the following chargeable additional services: 

Other options for garden waste

If you are creating additional garden waste and cannot fit it into your green wheelie bin, please consider the following options:

Please note that we will not collect any excess garden waste due to health and safety considerations.

Home composting

Nearly a third of what we throw away is garden and kitchen waste, such as grass cuttings, leaves, and vegetable peelings.

This can easily be turned into compost which can be used on your garden and helps to reduce the amount of rubbish that is sent to landfill. This in turn also helps to reduce the costs associated with taking away your garden waste.

Digging compost into your garden will help to improve the texture, drainage and aeration of the soil and adds nutrients. Home composting is also the environmentally friendly alternative to peat-based products.

Details about discounted composters available to Dudley residents is available on the Dudley Recycles website.
