Other ways to recycle your garden waste

The Garden Waste Collection Service is an optional service. You can still take your garden waste along to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) free of charge. Find your nearest HWRC that can accept garden waste.

If you have a garden waste bin you no longer require you can take it to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre. Alternatively, we can collect them from your home. Please e-mail recycle@highland.gov.uk

We would encourage everyone to recycle as much as possible and help us to reduce waste going to landfill. You might want to consider getting a compost bin for garden waste. By composting at home you can reduce the amount of waste you send to landfill. Advice on home composting.
