Brown bin charges to come in next monthBy Becky Barnes

Brown bin users are reminded charges will apply from April 1.
Anyone who wants their garden waste collected fortnightly will have to pay an annual collection charge of £30 for a 240-litre standard bin and £26 per year for a smaller 140-litre bin.
Cllr Dorothy Hayes, executive member for the environment, said: “Once residents have paid for the service they will receive a sticker which they will need to attach to their bin for the collection to continue.
“Anyone with a brown bin who has not paid their annual charge and displayed their sticker by April 1 will not have their garden waste collected.
“As an alternative, residents can purchase biodegradable garden sacks at 50p each and these are available at small retail outlets throughout the borough.
“Home composters are also available and garden waste can also be taken to Longshot Lane household waste recycling centre.”
