Garden waste collection service

We work in partnership with both Mansfield District Council and Rushcliffe Borough Council to provide garden waste collections in different areas across Newark and Sherwood.

Which council collects your brown bin will depend on which area you live in. Please see the map to find out who collects garden waste in your area.

Registration for collections

The schemes run from April to March each year and registration to join the scheme in 2017 is now OPEN.

Information on your garden waste collection

Please select your area:

How much will it cost?

For just £30 a year you will get:

  • A brown bin
  • An all year-round collection service - every two weeks between March and November, and monthly from December to February

Additional bins are available at £30 each

The service runs from 1 April to 31 March. There are no concessions or pro-rata for joining the service part-way through the year

Upon receipt of payment you will be given a sticker to place on your bin. Only bins with stickers on will be collected

What can I put in my brown bin?

  • Grass cuttings
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Leaves
  • Small branches and twigs (up to 10cm in diameter)
  • Plants and weeds
  • Cut flowers

Missed brown bins

For both Newark and Rushcliffe routes please report missed brown bins to Rushcliffe Borough Council. We will aim to return to the missed bin within 2 days.

Garden waste collection calendars

During the colder months of December, January and February your garden waste is collected only once per month rather than every fortnight.
