Garden waste collections

Due to operational issues, we have had to reschedule food waste collection for some areas of Springfield and garden waste collection for some areas of Boreham on Friday 30 September 2022. We have rescheduled the collections for Saturday 1 October 2022. 

You can view a list of affected roads.

We provide white sacks for you to recycle cardboard and lower-grade paper, such as egg boxes, cereal boxes and toilet roll tubes.

You can check what you can put in your white sack for cardboard by looking at our list.

If you can't find the item you want to dispose of in this list, you can search by item instead.


We collect the white sacks for cardboard every two weeks. You can check your collection dates by entering your postcode or address.

If you have large pieces of cardboard, you can fold them and place them beside your sack.

Replacement sacks

You can order a new white sack for cardboard online if yours is missing or damaged.

You can also use other bags for your cardboard, as long as they are clear so we can see what they contain. You need to put these bags out on your normal cardboard collection day.

What happens to your cardboard
