Durham County Council’s Garden Waste Collection scheme will run between March/April to November 2023.
The cost is £38 per bin and those that sign up will receive 17 collections during the growing season.
Collections will begin March/April and will be followed by fortnightly collections until autumn when the collection season ends.
To sign up to the service or find out if a property is eligible, call 03000 260 000 or visit www.durham.gov.uk/gardenwaste
Residents are reminded that the following items can go in the garden waste bin for composting:
- Grass cuttings
- Flowers and bedding plants
- Hedge clippings
- Small branches
Those who have already subscribed to the service are also reminded to fix their bin sticker to the garden waste bin as soon as they receive it. Bins should be put out for collection by 7am on the collection day, when the scheme starts. Collection days can be found by visiting www.durham.gov.uk/MyDurham and entering your postcode and property number.
