Last few weeks of garden waste collections for 2020
5 November 2020
Residents and garden waste collection subscribers are reminded that there are only a few weeks of collections left for this year.
The service, which begins in March each year, collects garden waste fortnightly until the first week of December. To check your remaining collection dates please refer to the 2020 subscription sticker on your green bin, or visit: https://en.powys.gov.uk/binday
Subscriptions for the 2021 service will be open in January, with the services resuming in early March.
Cllr Heulwen Hulme, Cabinet Member for Recycling and Waste, said: "Many of us are really busy in the gardens at this time of year. Tidying up after the summer and getting things prepared for spring. So, we are keen to remind our residents to make the most of the last few remaining garden waste collections of 2020.
"So far this year, with the help of participating households, more than 4,000 tonnes of garden waste have been collected and recycled into compost
"Of course, while the service takes its winter break, you can still recycle your garden waste by composting it at home or by taking it to one of the five household waste and recycling centres in Powys once the lockdown restrictions are lifted."
