Torfaen Council’s garden waste collection service will restart in March.

Residents can put their green waste out for their fortnightly collection from the week beginning Monday 4 March.

Check your collection dates and recycling calendars online. 

What can go in your green bin?

The green bin should be only used for garden waste including grass cuttings, leaves, hedge clippings, small twigs, dead plants and flowers. It can also be used to dispose of bedding from small pets such as hamsters and guinea pigs.

What can’t go in your green bin?

Dog mess and cat litter must be placed in the purple-lidded wheelie bin for disposal. Food waste must not be disposed of in the green bin but placed in the brown food caddy for recycling.

Residents are also reminded not to use plastic bags to store their garden waste.
