FORTNIGHTLY GREEN WASTE COLLECTIONS FOR BRADDAN RESIDENTS – SUMMER 2022

Please use this service instead of depositing grass cuttings in your general waste bin. Burning garden waste is expensive due to the weight and does nothing to help the environment.

A refuse vehicle will be in the car park at Braddan School on Saturday lunchtimes from 11.30 to 1pm to collect your green waste. It is then taken away and recycled into compost.

You may be asked for proof of address. We will accept:-

  • grass cuttings, hedge clippings, raw vegetable peelings etc
  • Please, no trees or branches or cooked food items.
  • Please use the entrance and exit to the school car park to avoid congestion.
