Garden waste

Garden waste is not accepted in general rubbish or recycling containers (bins or sacks, where provided). The best way to deal with garden waste is to compost at home. For more information please visit RecycleNow.

Visit Herefordshire Get Composting for information on how to get reduced cost compost bins.

You can also take your garden waste to your nearest household recycling centre where it will be composted. The composted material can be purchased back at any of our household recycling centres at a cost of £2.50 a bag. For more information please ask one of the operatives at your nearest centre.

We can collect garden waste if it is placed in Herefordshire Council green sacks. These are collected at the same time as your black bin, or black bags, every fortnight and are sent to landfill.

You can buy a roll of five green sacks for £3.80 from our libraries in Hereford, Leominster, Ross-on-Wye, Ledbury, Belmont, Colwall, Weobley and Leintwardine. They are also available at Eardisley and Marden Post Offices and Halo Leisure Centre in Bromyard.

Herefordshire Council garden sacks are also available at the following locations (please note that prices may vary from that above and stock is not guaranteed): Bartonsham Stores, Carrot and Wine in Wellington, Clehonger Stores, Kingstone Stores and Moreton on Lugg Stores.
