Local people can now sign up to the new Garden Waste Collection Scheme being provided by Suffolk Coastal District Council.
Suffolk Coastal District 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: my.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.
