Council urges people to register for garden waste scheme
PUBLISHED: 16:00 08 April 2018
A council is urging people to look at its cleaner, cheaper and faster waste collection as the weather improves.
Sedgemoor District Council is inviting people to subscribe to its garden waste collection service as the evenings get lighter and more people start looking after their gardens ready for the warmer weather.
The scheme, which encourages people to recycle their garden waste, costs £55.40 a year which includes 25 collections.
Customers signing up have the option of receiving a green wheelie bin for their garden waste or garden waste sacks at a cost of £27.40 for 10 bags.
Garden waste will be recycled into soil conditioner to save time, fuel and prevent mess in people’s cars as they take it to their closest tip or recycling centre.
North Somerset Council does not charge people for collections, although there is a registration fee to obtain a green wheelie bin.
Those who would like to join should contact 03003 037800 or can buy compost bins through the Somerset Waste Partnership at www.somersetwaste.gov.uk
