Garden waste collections

Register to have your garden waste collected. Recycle bark, cut flowers, grass cuttings, hedge clippings, house plants, leaves, shrub prunings, twigs and small branches, untreated sawdust and wood shavings, and weeds.

Disruption to some waste and recycling collections due to snow and ice - 25 and 26 January 2021

Frozen surfaces are affecting many areas of the county, especially estate roads and footpaths.  This will disrupt some scheduled waste and recycling collections due yesterday (Monday 25 January) and is likely to affect collections today (Tuesday 26 January), as we can only collect where safe to do so. 

If your road has not been collected, please leave your bin out and we will attempt to revisit as soon as it is possible.  You do not need to contact us know if your road has been missed.

In particularly cold conditions, we sometimes experience problems with emptying garden waste bins where the contents have frozen.  Our refuse loaders will endeavour to release the contents but some frozen waste may remain in the bin.  Unfortunately, we will be unable to return to empty the frozen garden bins and would ask that you please release the contents before adding any more waste to the bin.

Please check our website for the latest information regarding disruption to the service.

You can pay online to sign up or renew your garden waste collections through Wiltshire Council payments

Please see the pricing table below to check the current cost.  Your payment will cover your bin being emptied until 30 June 2021.

Once you have renewed, you will receive a letter with your garden waste sticker within three weeks. Your collection days are not changing at present.

Bins will be emptied fortnightly, except for two weeks over the Christmas and New Year holiday period. Each payment covers the collection of 1 x 180 litre bin. 

After you have renewed or signed up, you will be sent a garden waste sticker within three weeks. The council will only collect garden waste bins which have been paid for and have a valid sticker attached.

If you require a bin, this will be delivered to you separately within two weeks.
