Garden waste collection service

We work in partnership with both Mansfield District Council and Rushcliffe Borough Council to provide garden waste collections in different areas across the district.

Which council collects your brown bin will depend on which area you live in. Please see the map to find out who collects garden waste in your area.

Which area am I in?

Please select your area:

How much will it cost?

For just £35 a year you will get:

  • A brown bin
  • An all year-round collection service - every two weeks between March and November, and monthly from December to February

Additional bins are available at £35 each

The service runs from 1 April to 31 March. There are no concessions or pro-rata for joining the service part-way through the year

Upon receipt of payment you will be given a sticker to place on your bin. Only bins with stickers on will be collected

What can I put in my brown bin?

  • Grass cuttings
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Leaves
  • Small branches and twigs (up to 10cm in diameter)
  • Plants and weeds
  • Cut flowers
