Garden waste

Bank holiday recycling and waste collections

There will be no collections on Monday 29 May 2023. Collections will take place one day later than normal for the week until Saturday 03 June.

Garden waste collections are available to Bridgend County Borough residents.

Collections of garden waste take place every two weeks between March and November (13 March  – 17 November 2023).

Please place your garden waste at the kerbside between 7pm the evening before and 7am on the day of your collection.

Please note: Your garden waste collection day will be advised with the delivery of your sacks.



There is an annual charge of £46.01 per household, or  £41.73 for pensioners. Each household that registers receives two garden sacks for collecting and storing their garden waste ready for their collection day.

Additional sacks can be purchased for an additional annual fee of £5.91. This charge is non-refundable.
