Subscriptions open for new garden waste service in Selby
Residents are being encouraged to sign up to the new opt-in service for kerbside garden waste collections in the Selby area.
Subscriptions are open for the £29 service, which covers collections from 28 August until 1 March, 2024. This step will bring the Selby service into line with paid-for garden waste collection services in all other areas of North Yorkshire.
From 28 August, residents will need to display a valid licence to continue having their garden waste collected from the kerbside. Each licence sticker is unique to the property it is registered to so cannot be used elsewhere. Bins will not be emptied if they do not display a valid licence. The licence sticker should be attached to the rear of the bin between the handles.
Residents can share a garden waste bin subscription with a neighbour. One person would need to pay for a licence which is registered and collected from one address.
Anyone who does not sign up to the service immediately should retain their bin in case they decide to sign up later. Bins can also be reused for storage, composting or as a water butt.
Residents who do not want to sign up for the service should either compost their garden waste at home or take it to their local household waste recycling centre.
