Renewals due for garden waste collections

SUBSCRIBERS to Wirral's Garden Waste Club will this week be receiving invitations to renew their membership of the scheme. By renewing, residents will continue getting their garden waste collected from home every 2 weeks, for 12 months from 1 June 2016.

The annual cost to be part of the Garden Waste Club is £35 to those who renew; or join for the 1st time; using the online payment system. This represents a £5 discount on the £40 subscription fee for those who pay in person, or over the telephone.

The fee, which is in line with what other local authorities charge for their garden waste collections, works out at £1.46 per collection. Residents can put grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, leaves, weeds and flowers into their brown recycling bin and it will be collected from outside of their property fortnightly.

In the last 3 years, the Garden Waste Club has collected nearly 33,000 tonnes of garden waste from Wirral residents. 

As well as being an easy way to dispose of garden waste, the collection service also gives residents peace of mind that their waste will be handled in an environmentally friendly way. If garden waste was put into landfill, this would produce methane, which is a powerful greenhouse gas.

All garden waste collected from members of the Wirral Garden Waste Club is taken to a centralised site where it is composted.  More information on the Garden Waste Club can be found on the Council's website.
