Garden Waste

For residents who are unable to home compost, there are two options to register for a garden waste collection:

  • Using our compostable sack collection service
  • Using our wheeled bin garden waste 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.
  • Contacting Cory Environmental on 01702 617766.

Please note that registration will need to take place on an annual basis to ensure collections continue.
