The Borough Council of Wellingborough have extended the garden waste service this year and extra collections will be made in November. The Council makes no guarantees of extensions in future years.
The last garden waste collections for the year will be the week of Tuesday 15 November for residents that put their brown bins out with their green bins, and the week of Tuesday 22 November for residents that put them out with their black bins. Collections will then pause until March 2017.
A collection calendar is available to download from the Council website
Black and green bins will be collected fortnightly as usual throughout the winter, and there will be no changes to your scheduled collection over the Christmas and New Year period. Wellingborough Norse will be working Tuesday to Friday as normal, with green bins being collected Christmas week and black bins being collected New Year week.
Residents are reminded that the brown bin is for compostable garden waste only. Items not accepted in the brown bin include: plastic sacks; plant pots; kitchen waste; pet waste; soil; bricks
Keen gardeners who are still producing garden waste throughout the winter period are encouraged to take their garden waste to the nearest Household Waste Recycling Centre or compost at home. Compost bins are on offer and available to order from www.getcomposting.com
