Residents reminded over Final Garden Waste Collections

middlesbrough-moving-forwardMIDDLESBROUGH residents are being reminded garden waste collections will cease for the winter shortly.

The final green bin collections of the year will take place on Friday, October 30 and are due to resume again in April next year.

Those planning a last tidy-up of their gardens are urged to do so in time to ensure any green waste can be collected and composted by the Council.

Over the winter residents can take their garden waste to either Newham Grange Leisure Farm or the Household Waste Recycling Centre at Haverton Hill.

Councillor Tracy Harvey, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Environment, said: “As ever we’re grateful to the many residents who have used the garden waste service this year – their efforts have contributed to a large amount of waste being diverted from disposal and composted.

“Once again we’d also like to encourage residents to consider home composting over the winter months.

“As an inexpensive, natural process composting is the greenest method of disposing of garden waste, transforming kitchen and garden waste into a valuable and nutrient-rich food for your garden.”
