PLEASE NOTE: There is an update to this story – Garden Waste collections will restart from 27th April 2020
From the end of Friday 27th March, Dorset Council are suspending garden waste kerbside collection, to help prioritise rubbish, food and recycling collections during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. More information about this announcement can be found on the Council’s website.
With household recycling centres currently closed, Dorset residents are being asked to:
- Reduce or stop producing garden waste for as long as possible, including cutting grass and trimming hedges
- Store your garden waste safely until services resume
- Not place garden waste in your other household waste bins
- Consider home composting
- Avoid burning their waste (as the smoke may impact any neighbours who may be suffering from the virus or other underlying health conditions)
