Price change for green waste collection service in Denbighshire
Denbighshire County Council is changing the price of its fortnightly green waste collection service.
From January 18 subscription rates for the green bin garden waste service will increase to bring the service closer to a self-financing model.
The new cost of the standard service will be £30 and the cost of the enhanced service will be £45.
These new charges will come into force on Monday, January 18 and will apply to all transactions made on or after that date.
Cllr Brian Jones, the Council’s Lead member for Waste, Transport and the Environment, said: “We have made the difficult decision to increase the subscription rates to move it towards a self-financing service as part of a wider need to identify budget savings within the Council.
“Moving to a self-financed service means garden waste collection is delivered under a fairer system where it is being paid for only by those using the service.
“Denbighshire will continue to offer a value for money service which operates all year round, with 26 collections a year. Garden waste can also be taken to the county’s household waste recycling centres for free throughout the year.”
Garden waste is not allowed in residents’ black bins and black bins containing garden waste will not be emptied.
Existing customers have had their subscription automatically extended after the stoppage of the garden waste service during the spring of 2020 due to coronavirus.
