Richmondshire residents who subscribe to the garden waste collection scheme are getting letters advising of changes.
Following the launch of North Yorkshire Council, the county’s garden waste service is being standardised to ensure all residents receive the same provision.
A council spokesperson said: “Today all subscribers to the existing scheme in the former Richmondshire area will receive letters and emails telling them they can now sign up to the 2024 collection service.
“Any residents in this area who haven’t used the council-run service before can also subscribe from today. Subscriptions for the remainder of the county will open in early February.”
A licence for the 2024 season costs £46.50 for fortnightly garden waste collections between March and early December, with the licence covering one 240-litre wheelie bin.
This is an increase of £21 on the previous year’s tariff, when residents had a 140-litre bin.
