“Over 8,000 gardeners have signed up for our garden waste collections,” said Councillor Paul White, Leader of Pendle Council.

“And it’s not too late to renew or find out if you can join the recycling scheme,” he added.

Margaret Orrell from Brierfield is one of the thousands of gardeners who’s re-subscribed to the popular green bin collections.
Margaret said:

“We’ve been on the recycling scheme for garden waste since the beginning.

“We think it’s good for the environment – that’s why we do it!”

Carole Taylor, the Council’s Waste and Recycling Co-ordinator explained:

“As the gardening season of long days and sunshine continues we’re reminding people who’ve forgotten to renew their subscription that it’s not too late!” 

The green bin can be used to recycle grass cuttings, hedge clippings, fallen fruit, small branches, twigs and even rabbit bedding!

“Simply check on our website to find out what can and can’t go in the green bin,” said Carole.
People can re-subscribe online via www.pendle.gov.uk/gardenwaste and pay just £30 which covers the fortnightly service until 1 July 2019.

“If you’ve not been on the green bin scheme but would like to see if you can join please visit our website and fill in a quick form to see if we can add your address to our garden waste rounds,” said Carole.
