Good news for anyone whose green fingered - as of Monday (August 17), garden waste collections will return to a fortnightly service.

They had been suspended and then reintroduced on a monthly basis to ensure so bin crews could continue making other collections while ensuring social distancing.

But now they are back to normal. You can check your bin collection dates hereMayor Dave Hodgson said “Our bin crews have worked really hard to keep the household waste, and recycling collections going, alongside a monthly garden waste collection and the special temporary garden waste facility at Oasis Pool.

“Thanks to all their work, we are now able to get back to business as usual and we are confident that our crews can deliver this while staying on top of the priority household waste and recycling collections. I know lots of people left notes and pictures expressing your gratitude to theses everyday heroes, and I’d like to add my thanks to yours."
