Have you renewed your garden waste collections yet?

Residents in Daventry District have just a few weeks left to ensure they have renewed their garden waste collections for the year ahead.

The annual charge for the fortnightly service from the start of June 2020 until the end of May 2021 is £37 per bin. Households wishing to continue with the service must ensure they have renewed their subscription by Friday, 15 May to ensure no disruption to their collections cycle.

Residents can renew or sign up for the service using their credit or debit card or by direct debit by following the sign-up link at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/gardenwaste

Those who sign up will then receive a permit sticker to place on their bin or it won’t be emptied. Residents who do not wish to renew the service for 2020/21 will receive their last garden waste collections during the week beginning 25 May 2020.

More than 20,000 homes have signed up annually to the chargeable garden waste service since it was introduced in June 2018 by Daventry District Council (DDC) and its environmental services partner Daventry Norse. The service is not paid for by Council Tax and was made optional and self-funding so it could continue for only those who want it.
