Stratford District Council Vote to Charge £40 Per Year for Green Waste Collection

At a meeting on Monday 15 December 2019, Stratford District Council voted by 17 votes to 13 to introduce a £40 charge per year for garden waste to be removed from green bins. It will still be free of charge for food waste to be collected from the green bins. Councillor Ian Shenton, Portfolio Holder for Operations stated that if people did not want to pay they could phone the council for the green bins to be removed. The charge will be introduced from 1 June 2020 with a 5% reduction in the first year for residents who pay by direct debit.

  1. I think this is bullshit and look forward to seeing all the fly tipping that’ll be happening because of this. Also £40 charge to have a green bin but free of charge to for food waste? Makes sense… 😂

  2. Will a one off payment option be available and will there be a reduction in council tax that we already contribute towards wast collection.
