Brown bin users to be notified of collection days by West Suffolk Council ahead of service being resumed

Brown bin users in West Suffolk will be told of their collection days this week ahead of the service being reintroduced next month.

West Suffolk Council announced earlier this month that the service, which was stopped due to staffing issues after lockdown, would resume from June 1.

Those who subscribe to the service will be contacted by the council via email or letter to let them know of any changes to the day or week of their brown bin collection.

Those wishing to subscribe to the service can sign up from Tuesday at www.westsuffolk.gov.uk/gardenwaste. The subscription will run until 31 May 2021and can be paid for by direct debit.

Cllr John Griffiths, leader of West Suffolk Council said: “Once again, my sincere thanks to our garden waste collection customers for their patience and understanding, and to those who have expressed appreciation of the essential services we have continued to deliver.

"While we are still having to manage the effect of the pandemic with significantly reduced staff levels, I am pleased to say that we are reintroducing the service in a robust way that makes rounds more efficient to cope with the extra growth, reduces impact on the environment by reducing fuel and mileage where possible; and protects the safety of residents and staff.”
