The Commissioners have taken the decision to not to continue with the Grass Collections using the orange bins.
This decision was made after a number of factors were taken into consideration: The grass that was collected had been taken to the Southern Civic Amenity Site where is was deposited free of charge. It was then composted and made available as compost for purchase. However, this is no longer the case. The green waste deposited is now charged for and is not composted. Therefore, there is no value in continuing with the dedicated orange bin collections. Other disposal routes have been explored, but unfortunately no viable alternative solution could be found.
When your orange bin is next full, please leave it out with your green bin on the usual collection day. Our staff will then empty the bin and take it away. Grass and other green can then in future be put in with your normal waste.
