Garden waste bin

We want to issue a reminder to residents who are signed up to the garden waste collection service that collections are going to be monthly again during the winter period of December, January and February.

“Fortnightly collections will resume in March”

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “The demand for these collections drops significantly during winter and reducing the collections frees up staff to help us deal with any issues caused by the cold weather, such as gritting routes or general maintenance. The usual fortnightly collections will resume in March, ready for the spring season.”

Work in social care and be the lifeline your community needs.
