Powys County Council has highighted the success of the first year of its green waste collection, and has promised that there won’t be a price increase for the service next year.

Almost 8,500 households signed up for the service, which sees green waste collected fortnightly for an annual cost of £35, and it is set to finish for the winter on November 22.

The service will restart again in March 2020, but households will need to re-register from January. 

Corporate Director for Environment, Nigel Brinn, said: “I’m delighted with the success of our new garden waste collection service. We would like to thank those who subscribed during the year and I hope they enjoyed the benefits of having their garden waste collected from their doorstep and will sign up again for 2020.

“The collection service meant that households didn’t have to get their cars dirty by filling them up with grass cuttings. It has also been good for the environment with residents spending less money on fuel and reducing car journeys to waste collection points.”

The council also confirmed that there would be no price increase for the coming year.

Residents can re-subscribe in January through www.powys.gov.uk/gardenwaste.
