Charges imposed on waste collection

Charges are being slapped on garden waste collections from March 10.

Broxtowe Borough Council has decided to impose the charges because it is ‘not a compulsory service’.

The fortnightly collection will cost £1.25.

Garden waste will only be collected from brown-lidded bins. For residents already in possession of one. The fee is £20 for any number of brown-lidded bins.

For the bin and service the fee is £30.

Exact dates for collections will be confirmed shortly. Sign up to the service at, register at Eastwood cash office or call 0115 917 7777.
