It’s time to sign up for the CDC Green Waste service

“As we continue reducing the amount of waste which goes to landfill, we will help combat climate change and reduce the amount of infill taxes paid by residents across the county.”
Claire Locke

Cotswold District Council wants even more residents to go green this year and contribute to the authority’s excellent waste recycling record.

The sixth year of the Council’s chargeable garden waste service starts on Monday April 1st and CDC is urging exisiting subscribers to sign up again while hoping that even more householders will follow suit. Everyone participating will help contribute to the Council’s impressive recycling/composting rate of almost 60% - yet again one of the best in the UK.

Those signing up for the service for 2013-14 will have their garden waste collected weekly provided they have paid a £30 licence fee to use the green garden waste wheeled bins. They will also be able to empty their unwanted food waste into the green bin. Additional licences can be purchased for a further £30.

Alternatively, for those who cannot accommodate a green wheeled bin at their property, 50 compostable brown paper garden waste sacks can also be purchased for £30 (available from the Council’s Trinity Road offices or at the Moreton Area Centre)

Residents who receive Council Tax or Housing Benefit are entitled to a 50% discount on the price of a green waste licence.

Claire Locke, Cotswold District Council’s Head of Environmental Services, said: "We have a great track record for recycling thanks to our residents, and it would be great to see even more people signing up for the service this year. We have pegged the price at £30 yet again which represents better value than ever.

“As we continue reducing the amount of waste which goes to landfill, we will help combat climate change and reduce the amount of infill taxes paid by residents across the county.”
