How it works
The garden waste collection is available to Bridgend County Borough residents. Registrations can be made from the 1 February onwards and you can register online.
Collections of garden waste are carried out between 18 March 2019 and 15 November 2019. The collections will take place every two weeks on the same day as your refuse collection. You can find out when your collection day is online.
Place your sacks of garden waste on the kerbside between 7pm the evening before and 7am on the day of collection.
How much it costs
There is an annual charge of £28 per household, or £24 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.
This charge is non-refundable.
