Registrations for garden waste licences for the 2024/2025 subscription year are currently open, and avid gardeners across the district can purchase an annual subscription licence of £49 per brown bin. Each licence will cover a fixed calendar year from 1 March 2024 to 28 February 2025, regardless of when it is purchased.

Councillor Andrew McHugh, Portfolio Holder for Cleaner and Greener Communities, said: “As we begin to see the return of clearer weather, many will be starting to get out into their gardens and making the most of the crisp air and longer days.

“I know that being more climate aware and taking proactive steps to reducing their carbon footprint is becoming more and more important to people, and our garden waste service is a reliable and cost-effective way to dispose of garden clippings in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way.”

New and existing customers subscribing to the service will receive a welcome pack in the post, including the all-important subscription licence label.
