Compost Composting services

There are a range of composting services open to help Leicestershire’s green fingered residents.

Home composting¬†is a cost effective way to manage garden waste from your garden, but when it isn’t possible, you can make use of kerbside collection services and your local recycling and household waste site.


Kerbside collections

Green waste collection
All of Leicestershire’s borough and district councils offer a kerbside collection of garden waste. Details of your service can be found on the district council website:

The garden waste collected is composted, ensuring that it doesn’t go to landfill.


Recycling and Household Waste Sites

You can take your garden waste to any of Leicestershire’s recycling and household waste sites, where it will be taken for composting. To find your nearest site, find out about opening times and permits, visit our recycling and household waste site page.
