Local people can now sign up to the new Garden Waste Collection Scheme being provided by East Suffolk Council.
East Suffolk Council is introducing a £43 a year charge for collecting garden waste this financial year (2018/19).
The scheme is optional, with the first paid-for collections scheduled to start from the beginning of May 2018.
It’s quick and easy to sign up, either:
- Go online at: eastsuffolk.gov.uk/MyServices. You will need to register, or login to, your My Eastsuffolk account and then complete the form for garden waste
- Call Customer Services on 01394 383789, and choosing option ‘0’.
- Or, pop in to see our Customer Service staff in the Customer Service Centre in Felixstowe and Woodbridge Libraries.
You will need a debit or credit card to pay. The fee for one bin is £43 for a year (the equivalent of paying about £1.65 per fortnightly collection). You can place your order now and don’t forget to say ‘YES’ to the upgrade.
