Spring has sprung, and it's the perfect time to begin mowing the lawn and clipping those hedges.
When using your green waste bin please make sure it doesn’t become too heavy.
Even a half filled bin can quickly become very heavy - this can make it difficult to move and can cause problems when the bins are emptied.
If you've not put your green bin out for a while, make sure that bits aren’t stuck at the bottom. If you can, loosen the contents before green bin day with something long, such as a stick, cane or garden hoe.
If you’re having a big spring clean up, you can also take garden waste to the household waste recycling centres free of charge, seven days a week.
Not sure what to put in your green bin?
