For residents who are unable to home compost, there are two options to register for a garden waste collection:
- The compostable sack collection service
- The wheeled bin collection service
Please note that garden waste collection days may vary from other collection days - Cory Environmental will confirm your collection day with you during the registration process.
How do you join the scheme?
If you would like a green garden waste bin, please contact Cory Environmental on 01702 617766.
If you have purchased the garden waste sacks, you can register your address by either:
- Completing the online form to the left.
- Completing the registration card enclosed with the sacks and returning it to Cory Environmental.
