Changes to kerbside garden waste collections - Have your say!

Please see the following information from Wiltshire Council:

The Council faces significant financial pressures with reduced funding from central government, increased service demand and inflation and these pressures are likely to increase.

One way of achieving some savings towards this is by changing the way the garden waste collection service is delivered at the kerbside in Wiltshire. The Council currently delivers a fortnightly non-chargeable kerbside garden waste collection service to those residents that request the service.

The Council’s Cabinet agreed to undertake a public consultation exercise to gain residents’ views on potential future changes to the current kerbside garden waste collection service.

The consultation runs until October 1st and presents residents with three proposals for changes to the service. The proposed changes are:

  1. A three month suspension of the non-chargeable kerbside garden waste service with no collections taking place in December, January and February.
  2. A five month suspension of the non-chargeable kerbside garden waste service with no collections taking place in November, December, January, February and March.
  3. To introduce a chargeable kerbside garden waste collection service instead of the current non-chargeable service.

Residents are asked to pick the one option which best meets their needs. The online survey is available via this link.

Additional information about the proposed changes is available on this page of the Council’s website.
