We discourage residents from burning household and garden waste.

Bonfires cause air pollution and can impact on your neighbours' health and quality of life.

Before having a bonfire, consider home composting your garden waste or signing up to our garden waste collection service. Household waste can be taken to the Hunters Lane Waste Recycling Centre.

We can investigate cases where bonfire smoke can be considered to be causing a nuisance and impacting on your quality of life.
