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.
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:
- Blaby District Council
- Charnwood Borough Council
- Harborough District Council
- Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
- Melton Borough Council
- North West Leicestershire District Council
- Oadby & Wigston Borough Council
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.
