Keen gardeners across the district are being reminded that it’s time to re-subscribe to the garden waste service.

Registration is now open for the garden waste service, and Lichfield District Council is urging local residents to sign up again to have their brown bins emptied in 2020.

The council has held 2019’s prices and it will continue to cost £36 per garden waste bin for fortnightly collections in 2020. Customers will receive a maximum of 23 collections, as the council does not empty brown bins over the Christmas and New Year period.

Councillor Liz Little, Cabinet Member for Recycling & Waste, said:

“I’d like to thank everyone who signed up to our garden waste service in the last year.

“We’re now reminding all our residents that they will need to sign up again if they would like their brown bins emptied in 2020.

“It costs the same regardless of when you sign up during the year, and your annual subscription will always end in December. This is why it makes sense to register before the first collection in 2020, so you can get a full year’s worth of collections.”

Sign up for the 2020 garden waste service at www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/mygardenbin or call the shared waste service on 0345 002 0022.

“It is important to remember that your brown bin will not be emptied in 2020 unless you are signed up and have displayed your new sticker on your garden waste bin.

“We are also encouraging anyone who signs up not to cover up their 2019 sticker with their new one, so our crews know to continue to empty your garden waste bin for the rest of 2019,” added Cllr Little.
