Prices frozen as garden waste service restarts in March17 February 2021
Gardeners in Wyre Forest can rejoice as the annual garden waste collection service restarts on Monday 1 March.
Wyre Forest District Council’s fortnightly kerbside collections are the simplest, cleanest and most hassle-free way of disposing of garden waste.
The council has frozen prices for the service so residents can simply make one easy annual payment of £52 for a 240ltr bin, and £36 for a 140ltr bin. There is a £20 sign-up fee for new customers.
Collections restart week commencing Monday 1 March if your brown bin is emptied the same week as your recycling bin and from Monday 8 March if your brown bin is emptied the same week as your rubbish.
Please note the council is no longer printing and sending out collection calendars. Customers can check their collection day online – www.wyreforestdc.gov.uk/gardenwaste.
Councillor John Thomas, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Operational Services said: “Our garden waste service is very popular with residents, it saves time, money and the inconvenience of taking your garden waste to the tip.
“The national lockdown has meant many of us are staying at home. Looking after your garden is a safe way to get outside and keep busy.
“You will also have peace of mind knowing all the garden waste we collect is turned into compost. All income generated from the service goes back into frontline council services to benefit all who live, work and visit Wyre Forest.”
