Garden waste

Garden waste is normally collected every two weeks and is only available to domestic properties.

A national driver shortage and the continued impacts of COVID-19 mean Bristol Waste have significantly fewer drivers than usual.

To maintain essential waste and recycling services, garden waste collections including sack collections have been suspended for ten weeks from 7 July 2021 and they won't be able to return for missed garden waste collections.

We'll send details of discounts and refunds as well as interim solutions directly to subscribers affected by the disruption.
