Green waste collections to stop for winter

Householders in Richmondshire are being reminded that this year’s collection of garden waste come to an end this month.

The changes only affect homes that subscribe to the district council’s garden waste collection scheme.

The last collections take place over the coming two weeks – weeks commencing November 16 and 23 depending on your location – before being suspended over the winter months.

A special green bin collection for Christmas trees and any other garden waste will take place between January 11 and 15.

Customers will need to book that collection – further details will be issued early next month.

Residents should refer to the website at for festive collection dates.
