South Kesteven garden waste collections to start again
South Kesteven District Council will soon be starting its garden waste collections.
Fortnightly collections for the 2019/20 scheme resume from Monday, April 1.
Cabinet member for environment Coun Peter Moseley said: “This is a popular and useful service that is easy to join. All of the green waste collected across the district is taken to a local composting facility where it is turned into compost that is suitable for agricultural use.
“We’ve frozen the cost to match last year’s price. You can pay just one annual fee and there is no limit to the number of garden waste bins you can buy.”
Existing customers will shortly be invited to re-join the scheme. You will be able to renew or register from Tuesday, March 5, using direct debit by visiting www.southkesteven.gov.uk/greenbin
Customers will receive their bin sticker and/or bin in time for the start of the new collection year which begins on April 1, so they must remember to put their sticker on the bin as soon as it is received.
A council spokesman said: “Don’t worry if you don’t receive it by April 1, as we will still collect your bin if you have paid to join or re-join the scheme.”
