Green Waste Collections at capacity

01 June 2018 at 15:24

 

Dear Town & Parish Councils,

 

With over 10,000 subscribers we are reaching full capacity for garden waste collections in some areas of the district with our existing vehicles and crews.  To increase capacity we would have to increase resources in vehicles and crew which would add £150,000 to the cost of providing this service.  Consequently we have taken the decision to suspend any new subscribers in the towns and parishes where we have no spare capacity on the existing collection rounds (see list below).  This change is effective immediately.  Residents in the remaining towns and parishes not in the list below will still be able to join the scheme whilst there is spare capacity on their collection rounds.

 

Residents will be able to put their name on a waiting list.  Any existing customers who reside within these towns and parishes who have not yet renewed for 2018 will still be allowed to renew their subscription after this time.  Residents who are not eligible for the service will be advised of the change when they attempt to book online or over the phone.

 

We will keep this under review.

 

Alternatively residents are encouraged to compost or they will still be able to take their garden waste to the County Council’s Household Recycling Centres in Horsley and Hempsted.
