About the garden waste service

Householders wishing to recycle garden waste in an Inverclyde Council brown bin need to buy a seasonal garden waste permit.

A permit is required for each brown bin presented containing garden waste.

The charge applies regardless of at what point in the year the permit is purchased.

Permits last for all brown bin collections during the garden waste collection season.

Seasonal brown bin collections take place between March and November. 

Please present your brown bin by 7am on your regular recycling collection day during the garden waste collection season.

Bins presented containing garden waste without a valid permit will not be emptied.

Brown bin collections have been suspended for the winter.  

The service is scheduled to recommence in March 2024.

You can recycle your garden waste at our Recycling Centres.
