Branch and pruning collections 

So that you don’t miss your collection, please keep your calendar all year as a reference. You can also check the dates below or look out for promotion in the local papers.

Place your bundled items out on the nature strip on the Sunday night before your collection week. There is no need to call us – your items will be collected sometime during this week.
