Extra Garden Waste Pick-Up for Subscribers

Posted: Fri, 16 Dec 2016 09:47 by Alison

Residents in the Harborough district who have already subscribed to the council's garden waste collection service will receive an extra green bin collection in January.

Harborough District Council has agreed that green bins will be collected during the weeks commencing 9 and 16 January 2017 on the normal recycling collection day (when the blue-lidded recycling bin is collected).

Residents who have already signed up to the council's garden waste collection service can fill their green bin with garden waste – including their real Christmas tree if they have one – and it will be collected. Real Christmas trees must be placed fully in the green bin with the lid closed.

Cllr Neil Bannister, the council's portfolio holder for environmental services, said: "I am pleased, in the name of festive cheer, we are able to offer this extra garden waste collection which I am sure will be welcomed by everyone who has subscribed to the service."

Bins should be presented before 7am, as normal, on the day of collection, and will only be collected from households which are already on the garden waste service subscription list.

Harborough district residents will be able to subscribe to next year's garden waste collections from 3 January 2017.

Harborough District Council's Executive agreed the extra one-off green bin collection for all subscribers to the garden waste service at a meeting on 5 December 2016.
