The new garden waste collection service will be based on the use of brown ‘wheelie’ bins. To access the service, residents will need to buy a new wheelie bin, which will remain their property for future years. Residents will then need to subscribe to the scheme. There are two sizes of bins available and residents will be able to buy a six or twelve month permit to the service.
The Council will also have reusable sacks available for residents who are unable to manage or accommodate a wheelie bin at their property. This service will only be available to these properties in consultation with the Council.
We will inform residents of these changes in a leaflet with each recycling container delivery and a service leaflet, including a calendar which will be posted to each individual property in mid March.
