Green waste consultation

Sefton council is currently reviewing the Green Waste Collection Service and proposing to make some changes to the service.

We want you to give your views and are running a consultation until June 14, 2013.   At the moment, residents who receive the Green Waste Collection Service are issued with a 240 litre green wheelie bin.   This is used to collect grass clippings, tree and shrub prunings, weeds, dead flowers and leaves.

These bins are emptied by the council on an alternate weekly basis (every other week) and the contents are recycled or used to produce compost.   The new proposal is to provide a fortnightly green waste collection service (via a 240 green wheelie bin, to any household willing to pay for the service on an annual basis (January to December).

The proposal is to:

•Charge for the collection for “green” or garden waste from residential properties in the borough

•Offer the service to any household within the borough that is willing to pay for a green waste collection service, including areas where the service is not currently provided

Let us know what you think of this proposal by completing the online questionnaire.
