Suffolk Coastal District Council is in the process of introducing a £43 a year charge for collecting garden waste and people can now sign up to register an interest in joining Suffolk Coastal’s Garden Waste Collection. Please see Suffolk Coastal District Council’s Press Release here.
This is a completely voluntary scheme, which people will have the opportunity to join.
Later in the year, subscribers to the scheme will also be given the option of receiving a free, larger (240 litre) green bin for their garden waste (240 litres is the most common wheeled bin size, but the current brown organic waste bins in Suffolk Coastal are 140 litres).
The new, larger green bins are expected to be delivered during the autumn (2018) to those residents who request one and have subscribed to the garden waste scheme.
