Verge Valet provides residents of participating councils with year-round access to verge waste collections at a time convenient to you.
There are 3 easy steps:
- Book (you’re in the right place)
- Wait until 1-3 days before your collection
- Put your waste out as before (no ugly skips!)
Residents have a limited number of collections per financial year. Collections are weekly and spots fill quickly so book early to avoid disappointment.
BEFORE YOU BOOK
