Garden Waste Collections Set to Start for 2018

By Published March 29, 2018

AS the Beasts retreat to the East, it’s nearly time for Middlesbrough’s green waste collections to get under way again.

This year’s collections resume from Tuesday, April 3, and householders are reminded that they should use the green wheelie bins only for the garden waste.

Any material left at the side of green bins will not be removed - green sacks used previously and other sacks and containers will not be collected.

Green bins are for loose, unbagged garden waste only - grass cuttings, leaves, small branches, dead plants and flowers - and should not be used to dispose of other items such as general waste, soil and rubble as these cannot be composted. 

Residents are urged check their recycling calendars which can be viewed and downloaded via the Council’s website to ensure they put their waste out on the correct day.

Garden waste can also be disposed of at the Household Waste Recycling Centre at Haverton Hill.

Councillor Tracy Harvey, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Commercial Services, said: “With the extreme cold spell behind us and spring just around the corner, it’s nearly time to start gardening again in earnest.

“We have a fantastic user-friendly recycling service, and our green waste collections are a hugely popular part of that.

“As ever, I’d like to thank everyone who uses this service for helping to ensure Middlesbrough has a green and sustainable future.”

Any residents requiring a green bin or further advice and information on   the disposal of green waste can call the Environment Contact Centre on 01642 726001.
