Green bin collections to restart in Richmondshire

Collections of garden waste re-start across Richmondshire next week for householders signed up to the district council scheme.

So far more than 5500 homes have subscribed to the scheme – which sees green waste collected from the kerbside every fortnight between February and November.

Subscription renewals for the February 2020 to January 2021 period are now due.

It costs £25 a year for the collection of one green wheelie bin with additional bins costing £17 a year.

Current subscribers should click here and either sign in to their ‘my account’ or follow the link on the home page – or call the council on 01748 828777.

Households can join the scheme at any time during the year, but there are no discounts.

Collections of garden waste are suspended during the winter months of December, January and February apart from one collection to remove Christmas trees and garden waste in January, which must be pre-booked.

People not using the scheme are asked to compost their garden waste or take it to a household waste recycling centre.
