Subscriptions due for garden waste collections
WIRRAL residents are
reminded that subscriptions to the kerbside garden waste collection service are
due for renewal. If you are 1 of those households who have opted in to receive
the service last year, please don't forget that your subscription ends on 31 May
2016 and if you want to continue to receive collections after 1 June 2016,
please contact Wirral MBC, on:- 0151 606 2004, Monday to Friday, 8:00am to
5:00pm. The annual cost to receive the collections, which takes grass cuttings,
hedge trimmings, leaves, weeds and flowers from outside residents' homes using
their brown recycling bin, is £40 this year; or £35 for those who renew or
subscribe online. The fortnightly collection days will also remain the same.
Those who did not subscribe to the service last year, but want to do it this
year can also now subscribe to receive the collections from 1 June 2016.
Cllr Bernie Mooney, Wirral Council Cabinet member for Environment, said:-
"Residents should subscribe now to continue receiving collections and new
subscribers are welcome. We'd encourage people to sign up online and receive the
£5 discount; if you don't have online access at home, consider asking a friend
or relative to subscribe on your behalf, or take advantage of the free IT
facilities at Wirral's libraries. For those people who have garden waste, but
don't want to pay for it to be collected from home, then we'd urge them to
either take it to household recycling centres themselves or try to find other
ways of recycling it, such as home composting."
