Brown Bins

Brown bin collections will stop from Monday 18 December, and resume on Monday 15 January.  Christmas trees can be placed in your brown bin for collection on your usual date after collections resume.

Please cut trees up to fit in the brown bin where possible, and if your bin is full, please ensure the tree is cut into manageable lengths and left on the kerbside beside your brown bin on the day of collection.
