Have you signed up for garden waste collection?

Mansfield District Council's garden waste collection service is gearing up for the forthcoming season.

The service runs from April 2018 to March 2019 and costs £30 a year for 22 collections - which represents a cost of £1.36 per collection. It costs £15 for each extra bin, up to a maximum of four bins. 

Cllr Andrew Tristram, Portfolio Holder for the Environment, said: "This year-round doorstep service for garden waste represents excellent value for money.

"As well as saving residents the time and effort of bagging up their waste and making trips to the tip, it also helps to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

"In addition, if household garden waste is composted on a large scale it reduces the volume of greenhouse gases produced, so it really does help the environment."

Collections take place fortnightly from April until November, with monthly collections running from December to February, returning to fortnightly collections in March to deal with the start of garden clearing activity in the spring.

The Garden Waste brown bin can be used for:

  • grass cuttings
  • hedge trimmings
  • leaves
  • small branches and twigs
  • plants
  • weeds
  • cut flowers.

Invoices for the new season are going out to all existing customers and for those who have signed up to pay by Direct Debit, the first payment will be taken on 10 March. From 19 March, information packs and bin stickers for 2018/19 will be sent to customers who have paid for the service.  

Mansfield residents who wish to use the garden waste collection service this year and have not yet signed up will be able to register online at www.mansfield.gov.uk/gardenwaste.

The annual cost of the service remains the same at £30, regardless of when people sign up to the scheme, so residents are urged join now to get the most out of the service.

New customers can pay for the service at PayPoints outlets, at the Post Office, online or by using the council's automated 24-hour telephone payment line 01623 428632.

The first collection for the 2018/19 year will start from Monday 2 April 2018.
 

  • There will be no variations to normal Mansfield District Council waste collections over the Easter period but the rounds may start a bit earlier so householders should ensure their bins are out for collection by 6am rather than 6.30am.
