The best way to deal with your Garden waste is to compost it at home.

The County Council sells compost bins at cost price (£42.00 including VAT). The Council also sells Water Butts and Wheelie Bins. Compost Bins and Water Butts are available from County Hall in Aberaeron and the Glanyrafon Depot. Wheelie Bins are available from the Glanyrafon Depot.

For more information, please see our Fees and Charges.

  • Home composting reduces the amount of organic waste sent to landfill
  • Home composting saves on the cost of buying pre-packed compost products
  • Home composting reduces the burden on diminishing peat bogs which are important wildlife sites
  • The composted organic material can be used to provide plant food and improve the quality of the soil.

Can't compost at home?

On no account should Garden Waste be placed inside a normal refuse container. Refuse containers found to contain Garden Waste will not be collected.

The Council also provides a weekly collection of food waste. Any food waste which you are unable to compost at home can be placed in your food waste caddy and left for collection on your weekly collection day.
