Council offers garden waste recycling options

PUBLISHED: 19:00 10 May 2014




GREEN FINGERED Sedgemoor residents have been invited to sign up to the council's garden waste collection service - but at a price.

The district council say they will collect the garden waste of those who sign up 25 times a year, but at a base cost of £46.50.

Any waste recycled will be turned into Revive soil conditioner, with Sedgemoor’s recycling rate for 2013 standing at 44.6%.

Anyone signing up for the scheme will have the option of receiving a green wheelie bin or garden waste sacks, which will cost a further £25 for 10 bags.

A council spokesman said the service was run at a subsidy of £8.50 for each customer per year.

To join the scheme, call 0845 408 2540 or 01278 435435.
