Council Garden Waste collections continue until the end of November

The Highland Council would like to thank householders who have purchased a Garden Waste Collection Service permit for 2020/21. The current permit started on the 1st of September and will run until the 31st of August 2021, with collections continuing until the end of November.

Councillor Henderson, Chair of the Communities and Place Committee said: “Our crews will be collecting brown bins right through until the end of November. The service will then stop for the months of December, January and February before resuming in March 2021.

“The response from householders for the service has once again been very encouraging. Brown bin collections are a convenient and easy way for householders to manage their garden waste, it is also a great way of diverting waste away from costly landfill.”

The final collection day in November will be Monday 30 November.

Householders can still purchase Garden waste permits on-line at www.highland.gov.uk/gardenwaste  or by calling the Highland Council’s Service Centre on 01349 886660.

The Garden Waste Collection Service is for the recycling of the following from your garden: grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, twigs and small branches, flowers, plants and weeds.  Customers are asked to check the contents of their bin to ensure it contains no contamination. 

The service is optional, and householders are also able to take their garden waste along to their local Recycling Centre free of charge. For more information please visit www.highland.gov.uk/gardenwaste (external link), e-mail recycle@highland.gov.uk or call 01349 886660.
