Green Waste Collection

You can recycle your green waste fortnightly from Monday 1st April 2024 to Friday 22nd November 2024.

Please note that we no longer require you to register to access this free collection service.

Please place your green sacks out for collection before 7am on your collection day, at your recycling collection point.

Due to the current significant budget constraints, the Council has decided to trial a £2 charge for green waste sacks.

If you require green sacks, which will be available to order from Monday 1st April, please visit My Services or call 01495 311556.

Please click here for FAQs relating to purchasing green waste sacks.

Please only use council provided green sacks to present your green waste. Any green waste presented in any other receptacles, including blue recycling hessian sacks, will not be collected. We are also unable to empty “ton bags” filled with green waste.

PLEASE NOTE – We no longer provide a winter green waste collection service, with FORTNIGHTLY COLLECTIONS ENDING ON FRIDAY 22ND NOVEMBER 2024.

Next year’s collection dates will be confirmed early in 2025.

During the period when the Council is not providing green waste collections, you can take this waste to your nearest Household Waste and Recycling Centres [HWRC’s], located at New Vale, Ebbw Vale and Roseheyworth, Abertilley.
