COVID-19 Update – Great Yarmouth Garden Waste Collections to resume

Great Yarmouth Borough Council will be re-starting fortnightly collections of garden waste, from Monday, May 11.

Their brown bins scheme was postponed temporarily on March 30 in order to allow crews to prioritise collections of black/grey general rubbish bins, green recycling bins and clinical waste. Garden waste collection is an opt-in paid-for scheme, so customers’ subscriptions have been extended to account for the loss of collections. In addition, on this one occasion, customers can leave out excess garden waste for collection alongside their brown bin, providing there are no large branches and it is presented in a plastic bucket, dust-bin or other rigid container that crews can lift and tip. Garden waste in bags cannot be accepted as this will contaminate the load. Please remember that garden waste must not be placed in general waste bins, especially as crews are already handling more domestic waste as a result of people staying at home. Black or grey bins found to contain garden waste will not be collected until it is removed. For more information visit Great Yarmouth Borough Council
