Dover Council to Charge for Garden Waste from April

Just as the District's recycling is creeping upwards Dover District Council are planning to introduce Garden Waste Charges from April.

This is shorsighted as we can as a community use such waste to produce compost as DDC & KCC has been doing or produce in other green energy initiatives

 From the DDC Website:

"New Garden Waste Collection Service

We are making changes to the way we collect garden waste.

In order to extend the service to all resident we have decided to introduce a chargeable collection service starting in April 2012.

Why are these changes being made?

The current garden waste service is only available to approximately 72% of the district and we continue to get requests from residents who wish to join the scheme but are unable to do so.

When does the new service start?

The new service will start in April 2012. You will need to subscribe to the service by April 2012 to continue to receive a garden waste collection.

How do I subscribe to the new service?

We will be sending an information leaflet to every resident at the beginning of March which will explain how the new service works and how you can subscribe. We will start taking payments for the new service in March.

How do I get more information on the new service?

We are in the process of finalising the details of the new service. Full details of the service will be given in an information leaflet, which will be sent to every property in the district, in the beginning of March. Further information will also be available on our website in the end of February."
