Blooming gardens

Gardens and green spaces are blooming right across Middlesbrough and it’s a delight to see. To keep your gardens looking tip-top, our green waste collections are running fortnightly until September. In October and November this will change to a monthly collection. Check the date of your collection and download your calendar now.

Green waste goes into your green bin and it needs to be loose, not bagged. You can add:

  • grass cuttings
  • hedge clippings
  • dead plants
  • weeds
  • cut flowers
  • shrub prunings
  • bark leaves
  • small twigs
  • branches

Anything which is not on that list can be taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centre in Haverton Hill. Please book your appointment before you go and remember to bring your ID with you.

If you’ve been thinking about home composting and want to find out more, we’ve teamed up with Get Composting to offer lower prices on home compost bins. Enter your postcode on the Get Composting website and you'll be directed to the items which are available.

As well as reducing the amount you send to landfill, you’ll also be creating some fabulous compost that you can use to make your garden thrive – blooming brilliant!
