  • If you do have green waste to dispose of please wait for a green waste bulk verge collection
  • Please think of your neighbours and do not put anything on verges outside of collection dates, as material left on the verge can be unsightly or hazardous in some instances
  • Any waste left on the verge outside collection dates must be removed immediately or a litter infringement notice may be issued
  • Please do not obstruct or obscure essential services such as fire hydrants, telecommunications, sewer or stormwater access, electrical transformers or power domes
