BOROUGH residents have been reminded they can still book six extra fortnightly green waste collections between November and March.

The extra collections are available for £30 at

They will start after the usual free fortnightly collections – which run from spring to autumn – finish.

The additional paid-for collections will continue to be made fortnightly.

Bins will be emptied on the usual collection day, with the six extra collections taking place between November and March next year.

The expansion follows the success of a trial last year when more than 1,000 households bought two additional collections in November and December.

Councillor Rob Clinton, cabinet member for waste management and climate change, said: "The collections will suit residents who enjoy gardening throughout the year, providing them with a convenient way to dispose of their garden waste."

The extra collections are also available to residents who have an additional brown-lidded garden bin.
