Join up ready for when spring's under way!

Spring is in the air which means it's time to start thinking how to make the most of your garden.

SKDC can help by taking garden waste away to save the time and trouble of trips to the tip or messing up the car with bags of garden waste.

Collections for South Kesteven District Council's 2020/21 Garden Waste Collection Service scheme start from Monday 6 April, which means it's time to renew or sign up for the service.

Last year over 29,000 residents joined the scheme, and they will shortly be contacted to remind them to once more take advantage of the service, which is also available to new members.

SKDC's Cabinet Member for Commercial and Operations, Cllr Dr Peter Moseley, said: "If you join today, you'll be ready to start gardening when spring is fully under way.

"It represents value for money with the reassurance that all of the green waste collected across the district is taken to a local facility where it is turned into compost suitable for agricultural use.

"There is no limit to the number of garden waste bins you can buy, so whatever amount of green waste you produce, we can deal with it for you quickly and efficiently."

Customers will be able to renew or register from Friday, February 28, paying by direct debit at southkesteven.gov.uk/greenbin 

A bin sticker and/or bin will be delivered in time for the start of the new collection year which begins on 6 April, so remember to put your sticker on your bin as soon as you receive it.

Don't worry if you haven't received it by 6 April as we will still empty your bin if you have paid to join or re-join the scheme.
