Garden waste collection service springs back into action

Veolia, working in partnership with Sheffield City Council, will be providing a garden waste collection service for 2017, with collections starting from 24th April.

To take advantage of all 15 green bin collections, which take place from April to November, residents need to sign up and make the one-off payment of £55.87 by the 5th April. To make being green even easier for residents, online payments can again be made at:

Debbie Doohan, General Manager, Veolia said: “Customers will receive a convenient fortnightly collection service which ensures their garden waste is composted at a local, licensed facility. We understand that being able to recycle as much waste as possible is important to Sheffield residents.”

Councillor Bryan Lodge, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “I’m pleased to announce that we have been able to reduce the price of the Service in 2017 and I recommend people sign up as soon as possible so they can get the maximum benefit from the Service.“

Unwanted garden waste can also be recycled for free at any of the city’s five Household Waste Recycling Centres or at home by composting. Home composting couldn’t be easier, for hints and tips on how to do it successfully see our website.
