Date published: 26 March 2018
From this week, West Lindsey District Council have officially resumed their fortnightly garden waste collection service!
March 26 marks the start of the fortnightly collections, however only the residents who have paid for a 2018 garden waste subscription can expect to have their green bins collected from this date.
If you have already paid for the service, be sure to check your calendar for your collection date.
Residents still wishing to purchase a subscription are being urged to sign up now to make sure they don’t miss out on their full quota of 18 collections, thousands of households have already signed up but there is still time for residents to pay the new £35 sign up charge and receive their sticker – which must be displayed on the bin in order to be collected.
If you have recently purchased a subscription and are yet to receive your sticker – don’t worry, it will be on its way!
If you’d like to sign up, you can subscribe online on West Lindsey District Council’s website www.west-lindsey.gov.uk/gardenwaste or by calling 01427 676676 between 9am – 5pm Monday – Friday using a credit or debit card. Phone demand is high and the council is advising residents, it is quicker and easier to skip the queue and sign up online at their convenience.
If households don’t want to pay, or can’t afford the annual charge, composting at home is a great alternative that is low cost and also good for the environment. To order a cut-price composter, or for tips on how to make your own compost for free, visit www.west-lindsey.gov.uk/composting.
There is also the option to dispose of garden waste at household waste recycling centres, which is free of charge at Gainsborough, Market Rasen, Louth or Lincoln. Please visit: www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/recycling for further information.
