Garden Waste & Recycling

Garden waste can easily build-up, especially as the weather improves. The Labour-led council introduced charges, which has reduced even simple cleaning of leaves and other garden waste from the pavements and verges in front of people’s properties. A Liberal Democrats-led council would:

  • Issue free green bags this Autumn, to have leaves easily collected in front of your property
  • Re-issue free green bags in 2019
  • Slash the renewal charge for green waste bins to £10 in 2019
  • Then re-introduce free green waste collections from 2020
  • Trial food-waste collections
  • Trial a system of points/rewards for good recycling
