We’re pleased to let you know that garden waste collections will re-start from Monday 20th April!
Thank you for your patience while we've been working out the logistics of this.
The seasonal kerbside garden waste service will be re-commencing on Monday, 20th April 2020 and cease on Friday 27th November 2020.
Your seasonal garden collection is usually on the opposite week, but same day as your wheeled bin collection, however, there are exceptions to this so you can check on our postcode finder here or contact Wasteservices@merthyr.gov.uk
Collections will then be fortnightly from your commencement date.
We will collect a maximum of 9 bags of green waste on your collection day.
Garden waste collected separately is sent to a local facility and turned into compost. This compost is used as a soil improver for numerous groundwork projects, transforming areas into a habitat for wildlife that is aesthetically pleasing.
Kerbside Garden Waste Collections
