Green waste collections across Bath and North East Somerset are set to restart on Monday 28 January, five weeks earlier than planned.
Bath & North East Somerset Council has been able to bring forward the resumption of garden waste collections after making savings in waste disposal – the direct result of an increase in the amount of waste local people are recycling.
Councillor Bob Goodman, cabinet member for Development and Neighbourhoods, said: “While the best way to dispose of garden waste is to compost it at home, we know residents value and make good use of our garden waste service. By restarting the service earlier than planned we hope to encourage people to recycle more and prevent unnecessary journeys to our recycling centres.”
There will be NO garden waste collections from Monday 3 December 2018 to Friday 25 January inclusive.
The council’s paid for fortnightly garden waste collection service will start again on Monday 28 January.
Christmas trees should be taken to our Recycling Centres, or they can be put out for collection free of charge on garden waste collection days between 28th January and the 8th February.
You can subscribe to our wheeled bin garden waste collection service for £44 per year with a one off delivery charge of £2.95. Alternatively you can purchase garden waste paper sacks for £2.75 each.
