Households are being reminded they can now subscribe to this year’s garden waste service.

The first collections will take place week beginning 23 March 2020 as per dates set out in the resident’s calendars (which can be viewed online).

To guarantee that you will receive all collections you’ll need to subscribe before 11 March 2020.

As previously reported, West Lindsey District Council has announced the charge for garden waste collections, will remain at the 2019 price of £35.

Chairman of the Prosperous Communities Committee, Cllr Owen Bierley, is urging residents to sign up now to ensure they receive all 18 scheduled collections.

He said: “Thousands of residents have already signed up to the service. We would like to remind residents that they do need to renew each year, to make sure they receive this service.”

Garden Waste customers who subscribe to the service this year will receive an additional collection as agreed by West Lindsey District Councillors, when they set the budget this month, as part of a pilot.

It means the new date will not be on the calendars which residents have already been sent.

Customers are advised that the new collection will take place two weeks after the last collection date on their calendar.

The Council has also agreed to an extra garden waste collection, which will take place at the start of the 2021 collection for those that subscribe.

Residents can sign up online, which is the quickest and easiest way to subscribe or phone Customer Services on 01427 676676. Alternatively pop in and see a member of staff at the Guildhall.

Households who do not wish to use the service are reminded they can compost green waste at home, see for further information.

Garden waste can also be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Centres in Gainsborough, Market Rasen or Lincoln. Please visit: for further information.
