Brown bins are being introduced for garden waste.
You will need to sign up and pay for this service. If you subscribed to the garden waste service in 2017/18 and want to receive the same number of bins you had last year, free of charge, you need to subscribe before 4 June 2018. After this date there will be a charge of £25.
• Additional brown bins can be ordered
• Alternatively, compost your grass cuttings, leaves and weeds
• No unwanted items such as plastic or wood
• You no longer need a subscription sticker for the bin
Green bins will be used for recycling paper and cardboard.
If you don’t already have a green bin you can order one, free of charge, before 4 June. After this date there will be a charge of £25.
A leaflet outlining the changes is being delivered to all home in the borough. Keep an eye out for your copy or alternatively you can download one below:
