Disposal of household and garden waste

Garden waste can be composted or recycled by your local authority

There aren’t any laws preventing garden bonfires, but there are laws if the bonfire becomes a nuisance. You can’t burn household or garden waste if it is likely to cause pollution or harm people's health. You can get rid of household or garden waste by composting or recycling it safely and responsibly.

For tips from your local council on how to recycle using their system, please visit:
