When the District Council’s new garden waste collection scheme starts next week we’re asking subscribers to note that their usual collection day will not change initially. More than 16,500 sign-ups have been recorded to date.
However, please note that as we have a Bank Holiday next week, all waste & recycling collections will happen one day later than usual. There will be no collections on Easter Monday, but Serco’s crews will work on Saturday 10 April. So, for example, if a resident’s usual garden waste collection day is Tuesday, next week only it will happen one day later, on Wednesday.
Crews will also be working this Friday (Good Friday), which will be the last day of any scheduled garden waste collections for households that haven’t subscribed to the new scheme.
