Following the successful introduction of Rutland’s green waste service in 2018, it will soon be time for residents to renew their subscriptions if they would like to continue with green waste/green bin collections.
For current green waste service users, subscriptions are due to end on 31 March 2019.
The annual fee for green waste collections, approved by Council on 17 December 2019, remains unchanged from last year, which means a charge of £35 per green bin is payable for households that wish to continue with green waste collections from 1 April 2019.
Subscriptions can be renewed from 4 February 2019 onwards and letters are being issued to all green waste service users from this week, to advise them of their options.
The quickest and easiest way to subscribe is via Direct Debit. One off payments can also be made online by visiting: www.rutland.gov.uk/greenwaste or over the phone by calling: 01572 758 488.
A discount is available if someone living in a property is in receipt of local Council Tax support.
Following the subscription period, we will be issuing new stickers to be displayed on green bins from 1 April 2019.
Subscriptions must be completed by 1 March 2019 in order for stickers to be sent and arrive in time for 1 April 2019. Green bins which do not display the new 2019 sticker will not be collected after 31 March 2019.
