Denbighshire Council is reminding residents to renew their annual subscription to the garden waste collection service.
Households sign up and pay an annual subscription to have their garden waste collected and subscriptions can be renewed up to 12 weeks before they come to an end.
Over 16,500 households are currently signed up to the scheme, which is over 50% of eligible households in Denbighshire.
Householders that have opted in to the service receive a collection calendar for the fortnightly service and a bar-code sticker for their green bin, or bar-coded tags where garden waste is collected in bags.
The following garden waste goes in your green wheelie bin or green dumpy sack: grass cuttings, garden prunings, branches and twigs, leaves, bark, flowers and plants.
The council will not empty green dumpy bags or green bins which contain; soil, general household rubbish or food products.
Garden waste can also be disposed of through recycling parks, free of charge. Some garden wastes can be shredded and returned to the soil as a mulch or composted at home either on a traditional compost heap or a home composter.
Denbighshire's introduction of charges for garden waste collection followed a significant reduction in its grant from the Welsh Government.
The council set an annual charge of £24 to empty its standard 140 litre green garden waste bin every two weeks with an option to have a second bin for an extra £12. There is a £2 discount if you renew online. There is an equivalent service in place for residents who use the Council's green dumpy sacks for garden waste.
If you aren't already signed up for this service and wish to do so, you can sign up on www.denbighshire.gov.uk<http://www.denbighshire.gov.uk> or, alternatively householders can make payment by telephone on 01824 706101 (or 01824 706100 for Welsh speakers) or by calling in at any of the Council's One Stop Shops.
