Green bin will help keep your garden pristine

Have your say

Spring is here so now is the time to pop on your gloves, grab that trowel and get out in the garden.

No doubt many of you have already made a start, thanks to the bright, warm weather we’ve seen lately, and as such the pile of weeds and leaves may be stacking up.

If you have a green bin already then great, but if you haven’t here’s what it is all about.

Residents can subscribe to the green bin scheme run by South Kesteven District Council.

There is an annual charge (£35 for new customers joining the scheme, £25 for existing customers). The fee includes one bin and collection.

Households can purchase as many bins as they need.

The collection period is from April 1, 2014, to March 31, 2015. Collections are fortnightly all year round apart from December, January and February when collections will be once a month, due to the lack of green waste at that time of year.

An assisted collection service is available for people with disabilities.
