Green waste subscriptions available
Spring is on its way, gardens will be blooming and it’s time to renew green garden waste subscriptions!
Over half of our customers have already switched to direct debit payments so their subscriptions will automatically renew. Those who pay annually by card should check their email inboxes for details of how to re-subscribe, before 18 March.
Existing customers with direct debit are also asked to check that the bank details they previously supplied are still the same.
The popular green garden waste kerbside collection service collected 1,710 tonnes of garden waste since April 2020.
Councillor Steve Hastings, Cabinet member for recycling, said: “Our kerbside green garden waste service is hugely popular across the Island, with 10,000 customers benefitting – especially during 2020 with many more people getting out in the garden; saving trips to the tip, lower people’s carbon footprints and giving people more time to focus on gardening.
“All of the green waste collected is composted and goes back into gardens across the Island.”
Natasha Dix, the council’s strategic manager for waste and environment, added: “While the service is pretty full, there are a few spaces available, so if you are on the waiting list and would like to sign up I would encourage you to do so as soon as you can.
“You would have received emails from us too. Please do check your junk message folder just in case.”
