Garden waste collections to restart next month

News release issued:

Gardening season is around the corner and The Depot’s garden waste service is restarting on Monday 28 February.

The Depot’s fortnightly kerbside collections are the simplest, cleanest and most hassle-free way of disposing of garden waste.

To celebrate Kidderminster Harriers FC reaching the fourth round of the FA Cup, The Depot has given the collection service joining fee the red card.

From Thursday 27 January until midnight on Monday 7 February new customers can save £20, as there is no joining fee. It means they will pay just £52 for a 240L bin or £36 for a 140L bin for the year.

From Tuesday 8 February to midnight on Sunday 27 February, the offer will be 50% off the joining fee. New customers will pay a £10 one off joining fee plus £52 for a 240L bin or £36 for a 140L bin for the year.

Collections will restart from Monday 28 February if a customer’s brown bin is emptied the same week as their recycling bin.

For customers whose brown bin is emptied the same week as their rubbish bin, collections will restart week commencing Monday 7 March.

Collection day information will be made available on the council’s online bin day checker before the service begins.

Councillor John Thomas, 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.

“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.

“I would also like to wish the Harriers good luck in their upcoming fourth round FA Cup tie against West Ham United. Everyone at Wyre Forest District Council is fully behind you.”
