weeds (except Japanese knotweed*)
branches no more than 10cm thick and 50cm long**
cut-up Christmas trees
* You cannot put any Japanese knotweed in any bin, compost it, or take it the Reuse and Recycling Centre – you would be breaking laws controlling how this is dealt with and could be prosecuted. Japanese knotweed is harmful to the environment, extremely invasive and is difficult to kill. For further details please see the Environment Agency’s advice about invasive plants.
** Please make sure that heavy items such as branches and fallen fruit only fill about one third of the bin. This is for health and safety reasons when we lift the bin onto the trucks. We may not be able to empty your bin if it is too heavy.
