Somerset’s garden waste customers have just a few more days to renew their subscriptions.
With no grace periods or amnesties, they have until Friday 7 May to sign-up again and guarantee uninterrupted collections.
Subscriptions can be renewed through the Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) website (somersetwaste.gov.uk/garden-waste-collections) or any district council website. Online payments available 24/7 are the quickest and easiest way to renew.
Reminder letters and emails were sent to all 50,000 green-fingered subscribers last month.
Due to the Covid disruption to garden waste collections last year, current subscriptions were extended. Renewed and new subscriptions will run for 12 months from 10 May this year.
And this year the garden waste service is going stickerless for the first time thanks to new technology.
Stickers will no longer be issued for bin lids, with the crews instead using in-cab tech and real-time information to know who has subscribed and needs a collection – making it even more important for you to renew on time.
The 25-collection annual service costs £57.20. New subscribers can sign up at any time but will not get a service until their first scheduled collection after 10 May.
