  • 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

What will not be collected

  • Untied branches or prunings
  • Bags of any kind
