In order for Durham County Council to keep all their rubbish and recycling collections going through the Coronavirus outbreak, their 2020 garden waste scheme now collects on Saturdays.
This is going to continue to the end of the season and the dates for collections are available on MyDurham.
Residents have advised Durham County Council that they do not want this year’s late start to the scheme to create December collections. This means there will only be 15 collections this year not 17. While there will be no refunds, existing customers who sign up for the annual scheme in 2021 will only be charged £30.90 per subscription for the year. New customers will have to pay the full amount of £35 per subscription.
