If you haven’t yet signed up for Harborough District Council’s Green Bin scheme - now is the time to do it.

Charges for collecting the green “garden waste” bins will start on April 4. It will cost £40 per year.

You don’t have to pay the fee, of course - but if you don’t pay, your green bin will no longer be collected.

Thousands of residents have already signed up to have their garden waste collected from this date and have been issued with a bin sticker.

This means they will have their green bins emptied fortnightly between April and November 2016, and during March 2017.

Garden waste collections will not take place during the winter months.

Cllr Phil King, of Harborough District Council, said: “I am pleased so many residents have signed up to the scheme.”

You can sign up to the green bin collection service online at www.harborough.gov.uk/green-bin or call 01858 828282.
