Don't let the grass grow under your feet!

If you’re one of the hundreds of enthusiastic users of the council’s garden waste collection service, it’s time to renew your subscription. 

You have until Monday 16 March to go online and ensure the service continues seamlessly between April 2020 and March 2021.

Renewing after this date may mean a delay in the arrival of your new permit for 2020/21 and an interruption in collections.

The service costs £52 for 12 months, less than 15p a day.

Councillor Colin Swansborough, Cabinet Member for Place Services, said:

“This is a great service that has proved incredibly popular with residents and I’ve no doubt many more will continue to sign up.

“It’s so convenient and easy, especially in the coming months as everything in the garden starts to grow so quickly.” 

And much like the wheelie bins for waste and recycling, residents can request an assisted collection if they find moving a bin difficult.

Councillor Swansborough added:

“It only takes two minutes to renew online. Once done you’ll have somewhere to put the freshly mown grass and hedge trimmings and much, much more.”
