Garden waste collections take a winter break

Release date: 
Thursday, 30 November, 2017

Burnley Council’s garden waste collections have gone into “hibernation” as usual over the winter period.

The last collection of 2017 took place on Monday (27th November) and will re-start again in February 2018.

The garden waste collections have always taken a break over winter when there is less green waste to collect and all but those with the greenest fingers tend to take a break from gardening duties.

Around 9,600 households have signed up to the paid-for service after a charge was introduced in May. Those who have signed up to the scheme will see collections begin again from Monday 26thFebruary 2018 and their subscription will cover the period up until the end of April 2018.

Those already on the scheme will also be able to renew their annual subscription from February, covering the 12 months from 1st May 2018. Anyone wishing to join the scheme for 2018/19 will also be able to do so from February 2018.

More details will be announced nearer the time.

Councillor Lian Pate, the council's executive member for community services, said: "The new garden waste collection service is working well. It cuts out the hassle of having to fill your car with grass and cuttings and take them to the tip. The service is having its traditional winter break but will be back up and running in February, ready for spring when gardens come back to full bloom.”
