Highland Council would like to thank householders who have purchased a Garden Waste Collection Service permit for 2020/21.

The current permit started on September 1 and will run until the 31st of August 31 next year – with collections continuing until the end of November.

Councillor Allan Henderson, the chairman of the communities and place committee, said: “Usually our garden waste collections stop for the winter at the end of October but this year the crews will be collecting brown bins right through until the end of November.

"The service will then stop for the months of December, January and February before resuming in March 2021.

“The response from householders for the service has once again been very encouraging. Brown bin collections are a convenient and easy way for householders to manage their garden waste, it is also a great way of diverting waste away from costly landfill.”

The final collection day this year before the winter break will be on Monday 30 November.

Householders can still purchase garden waste permits on-line here.

The Garden Waste Collection Service is for the recycling of the following from your garden: grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, twigs and small branches, flowers, plants and weeds.

Customers are asked to check the contents of their bin to ensure it contains no contamination.

The service is optional, and householders are also able to take their garden waste along to their local Recycling Centre free of charge.

For more information please send an email to recycle@highland.gov.uk.
