Com­post ser­vice a suc­cess

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

MORE than 2,000 tonnes of gar­den waste has been com­posted in South Bucks since the new ser­vice started last year.

The gar­den waste, which is just over the weight of 200 buses, was di­verted from land­fill to a com­post­ing fa­cil­ity.

South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil hopes to get more peo­ple to use the ser­vice by sign­ing up for the gar­den waste col­lec­tion.

The coun­cil of­fers an op­tional col­lec­tion ser­vice for gar­den waste, run­ning from April 2015 to April 2016, for 50 weeks of the year.

An early-bird dis­count of­fer is avail­able for peo­ple who sign up be­fore Fri­day, March 20.

Those who signed up for the ser­vice last year will need to re­new.

Peo­ple can sub­scribe at any time for £45 but those who sign up to the ser­vice be­fore March 20 pay just £35.
