Coun Martin Foster, Portfolio Holder for Operational Services "We know a price increase is never welcome news, but nationally costs are rising for all organisations and the council is no exception.

"This small increase is required to cover the rising costs of running and providing the service and this is the first time the price of the garden waste service has increased since 2017.

“Further details about the 2022/23 service, including renewal dates, will be available in the new year.”
