Sign up for garden waste collections

News release from WODC:

Get your garden waste collected for the equivalent of just £3 per month.

All you need to do is sign up to our Garden Waste Scheme. You will be provided with a wheeled bin similar to your refuse bin and collections will be carried out fortnightly from outside your home.

The Scheme runs from May 2009 to the end of September 2010 and you can join anytime. If you start in June it will cost £48 for 16 months service.

Garden waste such as grass cuttings and tree prunings can be collected, along with vegetable waste, fallen leaves, hay/straw and bark/wood shavings. All waste will be composted, helping to ease the pressure on landfill sites. This is particularly important as, if sent to landfill, green waste can produce harmful methane gases.

The scheme has proved extremely popular in the past and we would encourage anyone interested to get in touch as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. You can find out more and apply online via the Garden Waste Scheme pages, by emailing or by calling 01993 861020.
