Compost service a success
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.
