New garden waste bins delivered to residents

Green Waste Web
Residents in Bassetlaw who have already signed up for the Council’s Garden Waste collections have started to receive their new brown bins, including one of the scheme’s biggest advocates, Cllr Julie Leigh.

Along with thousands of other resident’s across the area, Bassetlaw District Council’s Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods took delivery of her new bin this week and is already looking forward to the start of the scheme.

So far, more than 2,350 people have signed up and paid £30 for the fortnightly collections that will start in March and run through until the end of November 2017; and there is still time to sign up for the scheme.

Cllr Leigh said: “This is a fantastic new service that will help residents to recycle more and hopefully save them a sometimes lengthy trip to the local recycling centres.

“It also offers great value for money at a cost of less than 60p per week and I would encourage as many people as possible to sign up for this scheme.”

For just £30 per year, the Council will be making fortnightly collections for nine months of the year between March and November. The fee includes an additional 240 litre wheelie bin, in which you’ll be able to place grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, leaves, small branches and twigs, dead plants, weeds and cut flowers.

While it is possible to sign up for the scheme at any time of the year, please be aware that payments and orders taken after Friday 10th February may not be included in the first round of collections in March.
