Village garden waste skips (Eden only)

The village garden waste skip scheme provides skips for village residents to dispose of household garden waste.

How it works

Skips are available for two weeks each month, during the summer months by our contractor. Any garden waste in the skips is then processed to make compost.

The parish council needs to suggest a place to site the skip. Once the parish council finds a site, we can establish an 'agreement' between the parish council and ourselves.

Once an agreement is in place, we arrange for a garden waste skip for the village. The skip is available for use between April and October, for two weeks each month or until it is full.

We will review the scheme each year.

We do not advertise when skips are available.
