Green garden waste
Green garden waste sack collection service
We provide a chargeable collection service for bagged green garden waste which we compost.
For those that have green garden waste sack stickers at home the collections are operating during this time, and bookings can be made for future collections through our free phone line or email. We are looking at alternative ways in which we can provide stickers whilst libraries and council offices are closed.
Information about COVID-19 and council services is updated daily at www.bromley.gov.uk/covid-19.
All you need to do is purchase a sticker and attach to a standard size refuse sack containing your green garden waste. Each sticker costs £1.60 (non refundable), and can be purchased from your local library or the Civic Centre.
To book a collection, call the freephone hotline Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm or simply email us with your full name, address and postcode stating the number of sacks you want us to collect.
We will then tell you the day your collection will be made and give you a booking reference number. Please place your garden waste in a standard size refuse sack (not exceeding 20kg which should be easy enough for the average person to lift) at the front edge of your property in a visible location for our collection crews by 7am on the day of collection.
We will be in your area every two weeks and collections are allocated on a pre-booked basis - subject to the available capacity of the vehicle.
We can accept and will compost:
- Grass cuttings
- Hedge trimmings
We cannot accept:
- Food or household waste
- Plastic and flower pots
On the day of the collection:
- Place the sticker on your sack. Please use only standard size refuse sacks - not large builder bags or skip bags.
- Place your sack at the front edge of your property nearest to the road in a visible location for our collection crews by 7am please.
- Remember, as we need to pick up the sack, it must be strong enough to hold together when lifted but light enough to be carried by the average person.
