Did you know the expanded garden organics service starts on Monday 11 July. The bins will be delivered soon to all eligible properties. These bins are collected on the same day as your general waste bin and on the alternate week to the recycling bin. Search 'bin day' to find your collection day. Please don't use your new garden organics bin until Monday 11 July as it won't be emptied. For more information visit the Garden organics bin FAQs.
