We’re introducing an annual charge for garden waste collections from Thursday 1 April.
Why we have made these changes
Council finances are under pressure, even more so this year, but it has not been an easy decision. The income generated from charging for garden waste will make the service self-financing and free up resources to protect essential services.
The changes being made will also make a positive contribution to our carbon emissions target by encouraging and supporting more home composting. Composting is the most environmentally sustainable way to dispose of garden waste.
