Why do I have to book a collection for my garden sacks?
There are 3 main reasons that we need garden sacks to be booked for collection.
New bin collection trucks
The current bin collection trucks are split bodied - one side collects recycling and the other side collects garden waste. From July, we will be using new trucks and these are not split - recycling will go on one truck and garden waste on another.
Increase recycling capacity
During winter there is very little garden waste - this means that the garden waste half of the truck is very low during the colder months. Switching to a full recycling truck will mean we can maximise recycling.
Reduce our carbon footprint
If we know where garden waste needs to be collected, we can become more fuel efficient and reduce our carbon footprint. We have a list of our brown bin customers, but we don't have a list of garden sacks. For this reason, we need garden sacks to be booked for collection.
Cost and where to find garden sacks
If you don't have or want a brown bin you can use our brown biodegradable sacks.
The collection fee is included in the price of the bag itself, so you do not need to pay the brown bin annual fee for this service.
The bags cost £1 each.
