Branch & pruning collection

We operate an annual collection for branches and prunings that don’t fit in your garden bin.

What will be collected

Household branches and prunings that are:

  • up to 150mm (six inches) in diameter
  • no longer than 1.5 metres (five feet) in length
  • up to one cubic metre in volume e.g. no more than a single trailer load
  • neatly bundled and securely tied with string or twine, or placed in containers that can be emptied and left on the kerb

Note: due to Occupational Health and Safety regulations, individual bundles or containers must not exceed 15kg in weight.

What will not be collected

  • Untied branches or prunings
  • Bags of any kind
  • Hard rubbish or household waste
  • Noxious weeds like ivy, prickly pears, box thorns and blackberries

Note: any unacceptable items placed out for collection will be left behind and may incur an infringement.

2018 collection week dates

You told us that early winter was the best time of year to prune your gardens, so we changed our dates to make sure our branch and pruning collection suited. 

The collection took place in July. It will not take place in September as previously advertised in some publications. We apologise for any confusion this has caused. 

Don't forget, residents can drop off one car boot load of branches and prunings to the Transfer Station for free all year.
