With stickers being dispatched and bins for new customers being delivered, the 2021 garden waste recycling collections have begun.
If you haven’t got round to renewing your subscription, or signing up for the first time, you can still do so anytime by visiting www.powys.gov.uk/gardenwaste or calling 01597 827465.
The garden waste recycling collection service provides an easy, clean and simple way of getting rid of your garden waste, with the knowledge that it will all be collected, recycled and turned into compost.
The annual subscription of £37, includes the hire of a 240-litre wheeled bin and fortnightly collections of your garden waste between 1 March and 3 December which, following resident’s feedback, includes more collections than last year. A smaller 120-litre bin is available at a reduced rate for households with small gardens, or compostable garden waste sacks for those who have their residual rubbish collected in purple bags.
If you are re-subscribing for another year, you will receive a sticker to place on your green
wheeled bin to help indicate to the crew that you have signed up for the 2021 collections. New subscribers to the service will have their green wheeled bin delivered by the council within 10 working days, so make sure you sign up early to benefit from as many of the scheduled collections as possible.
You can subscribe now by visiting www.powys.gov.uk/gardenwaste or by calling 01597 827465.
To improve the efficiencies of the rounds we have made some day changes so please check your collection day on your sticker or visit www.powys.gov.uk/binday
