Prepare for summer with the East Northamptonshire Council Garden Waste Service

Published Thursday, 28 May 2015

Summer is a busy time for gardeners and East Northamptonshire Council (ENC) can help with getting rid of your green waste.

The ENC Garden Waste Service is cheaper than other local competitors for the collection of grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, weeds, dead plants and flowers, prunings and leaves. Members are provided with a 240 litre wheeled bin which is emptied every fortnight (except at Christmas and New Year). All of the waste collected is recycled locally into compost, reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.

Occasional gardeners can buy packs of ten 75 litre compostable sacks to collect and store their garden waste in.  Use these as and when you choose, and simply phone us to book the collection of a minimum of three sacks.

Cllr Steven North, Leader of East Northamptonshire Council, said: "With over 4,000 members, this Garden Waste Service is a really popular and handy scheme for gardeners across the district. Kerbside collection is convenient and 81% of those who signed up to the service in previous years have renewed their contract this year, so we know that most users value it highly." 

To find out more and to sign up to this ENC service, visit the Garden Waste Service page or call 01832 742043.
