Garden waste collections

The council and our waste collection partners Allerdale Waste Services would like to apologise for the issues which have affected some properties' garden waste collections over the last couple of weeks. The issues have been caused by self-isolation and other staff absences. 

The advice for households who've not had their collection this week is to take bins back in and present them on their next scheduled garden waste collection day.

Households are advised to continue checking our website and social media accounts for the latest information on collections.

* Following the introduction of a charge to join or remain on the Register in October 2018, households already on the Register were advised they would have to pay a charge. All households on the Register declined to pay the charge, and were removed from the Register. After a review of the policy, the charge was removed in September 2019 and households were given the opportunity to re-apply to join the Register.
