Garden waste

The garden waste service is available for households in Sunderland with brown bins, making it easier to dispose of garden waste, which will be recycled by turning it into mulch or soil conditioner.

  • There will be 17 garden waste collections starting from the beginning of April to the end of November 2018
  • The charge is £30 for the year to have one bin emptied, and £20 for each additional bin up to a maximum of 4
  • No refund will be given if you choose to cancel your subscription
  • Once you have completed the sign up you will be sent a letter explaining the service along with a sticker to be placed on your bin

 Sign up for garden waste collections 

Further information can be found in our frequently asked questions and terms and conditions of the service.

If you don't want to subscribe to the garden waste service, larger volumes of garden waste can be disposed of at one of our waste and recycling centres, or a bulky waste collection can be booked.

You can also place small amounts of garden waste in your household waste bin.
