Where to take it

Home composting is an environmentally friendly way to deal with some of your food and garden waste. It is easy to do and produces nutrient-rich compost for your flower beds and window boxes. You can find out more information on Recycle Now's website.

Important information

There are special arrangements for the disposal of noxious and invasive weeds. Japanese Knotweed and Giant Hogweed are the most noxious but there are others that mustn’t go in, for example, Common Ragwort, Broadleaved Dock, Curled Leave Dock, Spear and the Spear Thistle.

Soil and rubble can be taken to your local tip (household waste recycling centre). You can also buy compost from the household waste recycling centres.
