Garden Waste Permits Reminder11/02/20
A charging scheme for garden waste collections in Dundee starts next month.
Permits costing £35 per bin per year are available to order from the council.
People are being advised to purchase their permits by Monday February 17 to ensure the maximum number of collections between March and November.
Neighbourhood services convener Councillor Anne Rendall said: “By continuing to take part in green waste collections people will be helping Dundee City Council in its drive to meet ambitious national recycling targets.
“The charges will entitle residents to around 20 fortnightly uplifts from March to November.
“The waste is taken to our Riverside facility and then turned into Discovery Compost, which is then made available to gardeners and farmers.”
People will still be able to dispose of their garden waste for free at the city’s recycling centres located at Baldovie and Riverside.
Home composting bins can be bought in many retail outlets and are available to purchase from Dundee City Council for £20 with free delivery.
The city council has produced pages on its website at www.dundeecity.gov.uk/gardenwaste with details about the permit scheme and how to apply.
