Allerdale Borough Council is reminding residents that their garden waste collections will soon come to an end for 2022.

The council provides a fortnightly garden waste collection to most households throughout Allerdale. Collections are postponed over the winter months, as the amount of waste produced by green-fingered residents drops off. 

The last collections for 2022 are either the week commencing Monday 5 December or week commencing Monday 12 December depending on the collection round that the property is on. The last collection will take place on Friday 16 December.

Residents can check their last collection date on the council’s website.

Garden waste collections return in March 2023.

Throughout the period of time where there are no garden waste collections, garden waste can be taken to Household Waste Recycling Centres at Maryport, Wigton and Workington.
