Households in Wiltshire are being urged to renew their garden waste subscription - or risk losing out.

With summer finally upon us and better weather emerging, more and more households in Wiltshire are getting out the lawnmowers and putting on their gardening gloves.

Those who make use of the Wiltshire Council garden waste service are being told they could risk missing out if they don't renew their subscription.

The subscription service uses in-vehicle technology to help waste collectors identify which households to visit via an online payment service.

But the fortnightly service will end for the year on June 30, 2024, and will not automatically continue for existing users unless it is manually renewed.

For customers still hoping for a garden waste collection, this subscription will need to be renewed by Friday, June 28 at the latest.

“From 1 April 2023 to 31 March 2024 we collected more than 32,000 tonnes of garden waste from over 84,000 households in Wiltshire," said Cllr Dominic Muns, cabinet member for environment.

“Our aim is to reduce the amount of Wiltshire’s waste going to landfill as much as possible."

New customers can sign up at any time on the Wiltshire Council website, and anyone not wishing to renew their subscription does not need to contact the council.
