Due to the high levels of participation on the brown bin garden waste collection service and the volume of bins being presented there may be delays in emptying your bin.  This may mean your bin being emptied later than usual on the particular day of collection or on the following day. We would ask residents to leave their bin out for collection. If your bin has not been emptied within 48 hours of the allocated day of collection please contact the Council on 433710.

Dundee City Council offers a separate kerbside collection for green waste from domestic properties. The scheme was launched in 1990 and has been expanded through the years. It is now offered to approximately 40,000 properties throughout the city, with around 32,000 households taking a wheeled brown bin. The bins are collected on a fortnightly cycle from March to November with a monthly collection taking place from December to February.
