Don’t forget to place any waste fruit from fruit trees in your food waste containers for collection where possible.


If there is too much to fit in your food waste caddy, you can fill 2 garden waste bags and place them out on your black bag collection day. If you have more than 2 bags, please place these out with your green waste for collection.


Please clearly label the bag as 'windfall fruit'.


Please do not overfill your bags as they will become too heavy for the crews to lift.
