Dundee householders will be receiving letters soon informing them of changes to the city’s garden waste collections from March 2020.

If people want to continue the collections from that date, they can purchase a permit costing Β£35 for each bin a year.

The city council has produced pages on its website at www.dundeecity.gov.uk/gardenwaste with details about the permit scheme and how to apply.

Reminder letters will also be issued and the city council will post updates on its social media feeds.

Neighbourhood services convener Councillor Anne Rendall said: β€œBy continuing to take part in green waste collections people will be helping Dundee City Council in its drive to meet ambitious national recycling targets.

β€œThe charges will entitle residents to around 20 fortnightly uplifts from March to November each year, which works out at Β£1.75 per collection.

β€œThe waste is taken to our Riverside facility and then turned into Discovery Compost, which is then made available to gardeners and farmers.”

People will still be able to dispose of their garden waste for free at the city’s recycling centres located at Baldovie and Riverside.

Home composting bins can be bought in many retail outlets and are available to purchase from Dundee City Council for Β£20 with free delivery.
