You can buy biodegradable sacks for garden waste without subscribing to our fortnightly collections service. The sacks keep plastics from contaminating the composting process.
We only collect garden waste in Richmond-branded sacks.
- We operate a fortnightly collection service for garden sacks - check your collection day
- Sacks should be placed on your property at the boundary with the kerbside by 6am and should be clearly visible from the road
- We now use blue sacks to help the collection crew tell them apart from ordinary rubbish bags. Please use this bag if you wish to have your garden waste collected
Garden sacks cost £16.40 per pack (10 sacks per pack).
Please store your garden sacks in a cool, dark and dry place to help prevent them starting to biodegrade, and use them within 60 days of purchase. During hot weather the sacks may start to break down if left outside for over a week, so try not to fill the sacks too far in advance of your collection.
