Enderby Residents, along with others in Blaby District are being reminded that the District Council’s new format for collecting garden waste has come into force.
The recent weekend of hot weather has seen a surge in DIY activity, Spring cleaning and particularly gardening. The sweet chirruping of the chaffinch, starling and blackbird was intermingled with the shrill rasp of the lesser-spotted lawn strimmer.
The increased garden activity has led to full garden waste bins and the District Council has issued a timely reminder that its new ‘sticker’ system is in force.
All garden waste bins must now be presented on kerbside collection days bearing a sticker to show a subscription for the year has been purchased.
The Council have started to place ‘bin hangers’ on all garden waste bins that do not show a sticker attached on them. The hanger will inform the owner of the bin that they need to purchase a sticker and give instruction on how to obtain one.
During the current April collection period garden waste bins not displaying the sticker will be collected but operatives will leave the bin hanger saying that the resident requires a sticker.
On the next scheduled collection to properties, bins presented without a valid sticker will see the bin left with its contents and another ‘reminder’ bin hanger left.
