Garden waste


Collection dates

We’ve had to change garden waste collections because of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Garden waste subscribers will have one collection instead of two before the winter break.

  • Check your when your last collection date will be.
  • Do not call us to report a missed collection. Put your bin out on your next scheduled collection date.
  • Let neighbours know about the changes.

We’re sorry to customers affected by the changes. We can’t offer a refund, but you may leave an extra bin bag of garden waste with your brown bin on your next collection day.

You can also take garden waste to the Community Recycling Centres in Grimsby or Immingham. Sites are open from 8am to 6pm seven days per week.

Crews will collect:

  • grass
  • hedge cuttings
  • plants and cut flowers from your garden
  • weeds
  • fallen fruit
  • twigs and small branches
