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."
