Garden Waste Collection Consultation

Conwy County Borough Council is asking residents to give their views about charging for collecting garden waste.

Local Authorities are allowed to charge for collecting household garden waste and many councils already do this, including Gwynedd, Denbighshire and Flintshire.

The garden waste recycling collection service currently costs £620,000 a year and we would expect this cost to rise next time the service is tendered. This is no longer affordable and we are considering either stopping the service or charging to cover some or all of the costs.

The consultation is available on the Council’s website and in public libraries. The Council will also be distributing a limited number of paper copies to randomly selected households.

The closing date for residents to give their views is 5th April. A decision will then be made on the future of the service.
