Grass cutting

Due to industrial action between our waste contractor FCC and Unison, there may be disruption to waste collection services in Hull between Tuesday 1st May and Monday 14th May.

Due to the disruption, collections may be earlier or later than normal so we would encourage residents to make sure their bin is presented for collection by 7am.

We appreciate residents’ patience through this period of potential service disruption.

We cut grass areas between March and October as follows -

  • general areas and verges are cut once every 15 working days.
  • rough cut areas are cut once a year (such as cycle tracks and undeveloped areas)
  • OAP dwellings (all flats and bungalows) are cut once every 15 working days
  • the grass edges next to any obstacles (lampposts, trees and so on) are trimmed twice a year

Grass cutting is dependent on weather conditions and schedules are subject to change accordingly.

The spraying of weed killer is carried out three times per year between April and November. We spray around trees and obstructions and along the bottoms of walls and fences with non harmful product.

Before grass can be cut any rubbish, litter or debris is removed from the site to allow the work to be carried out to the required standard.

We do not collect or remove the grass cuttings after the grass has been cut from -

  • general areas
  • verges
  • gardens of flats and bungalows
