What can go in my garden waste?

The kerbside garden waste collection is for:

  • Grass cuttings
  • Leaves
  • Small plants and twigs
  • Non-invasive weeds

How is it collected, and when?

If you want to receive a garden waste collection, you will need to purchase re-usable garden waste bags from your nearest library or our office on Conwy Road, Mochdre, LL28 5AB, these cost £1.50 each. You can leave up to 6 bags out for collection on your fortnightly garden waste collection day. Please make sure that all garden waste is fully inside the bags. Bags with waste coming over the top may be refused by collection crews.

What we don't collect:

  • Soil
  • Rubble
  • Compost bags, pots or other rubbish
  • Animal waste
  • Large branches
  • Garden furniture or tools
  • Invasive weeds such as Japanese Knotweed or Giant Hogweed that cannot be composted by law. If you need advice on dealing with invasive plants, please click here for guidance issued by Welsh Government.

What if I have a lot of garden waste?

Larger quantities of garden waste can be taken to a Household Recycling Centre.

No Christmas Collection

Garden waste is not collected in Christmas week or New Year week. If you need to get rid of garden waste during this period you should take it to a Household Recycling Centre. Collections re-start in the second week of January. Please refer to your collection calendar or check your collection day for more information.
