Due to the threat of ash dieback disease (Chalara fraxinea), we are following the guidance from the Forestry Commission and advising residents NOT to put branches or leaves from ash trees in their brown garden waste bin for composting.
Please either leave ash branches and leaves where they are or, if possible, burn them on site. For more information please refer to the full guidance on the Forestry Commission website
So far we have had no confirmed cases of ash dieback in Norwich. Our tree officers continue to be vigilant and constantly look for updated information on what we need to do to following the government advice.
- Tree trunks and fencing.
- Plastic bags.
- Paper and cardboard.
- Kitchen waste including fruit and vegetable peelings.
- Straw, sawdust or other pet bedding.
Please remember, if your bin contains anything other than the materials listed as acceptable, we cannot collect your garden waste.
We will not collect garden waste that is left next to your brown bin, in recycling bins or boxes, or as part of your general refuse.
