Subscribe to SSDC's Garden Waste service with ease
Do you love gardening but dislike the time, mess and cost of putting garden waste in your car and driving to the recycling site?
You get a roomy wheeled bin that is easy to fill as you walk it around your garden, saving time and energy going back and forth. And the bin holds your garden waste neatly in a corner; no more messy piles of rubbish blowing in the wind.
Of course if you can and have the space, you should compost it yourself where possible.
Wheel your bin outside for the fortnightly collection and sit back and smell the roses instead of using fuel and time going to the recycling centre. SSDC will collect flowers, plants, grass cuttings, leaves, hedge trimmings, almost all weeds, and even branches up to four inches across, and compost them in Somerset.
Subscriptions start from 1st April each year. You can join the service during the year, but the full fee will apply. Refunds cannot be issued for cancelling the service during the subscription period.
From 1st April 2017 there are two options available:
A 12 month subscription is £53.50. This service remains good value and offers a quick and easy way for your garden waste to be collected and composted.
A 24 month subscription is £100. 24 month subscribers maybe be protected from any possible price increase in the second year of their subscription.
To join the Garden Waste Collection service or visit SSDC Garden Waste or call 01935 462462.
Alternatively, customers can apply to use compostable garden sacks, which currently cost £26 (£26.50 after 1 April 2017) for 10 sacks. These sacks can be left out for collection each fortnight on the collection day for garden waste for the property.
