A delay in the arrival of Spring has resulted in the extension of a special offer on garden waste recycling bins.

Scarborough Council is encouraging green fingered residents to buy a brown bin to recycle all of their garden waste.

And because spring has taken so long to arrive the authority has extended the spring subsidy to keep the bins at the low price of £15, including delivery, until the end of May when the price will rise to the new price of £22. Biodegradable garden waste sacks are now £1.50 for 10.

Harry Briggs, Recycling and Waste Enforcement manager for the council said: “At £15 delivered and with the rise in the price of our sacks, there really has never been a better time to buy a brown bin. I encourage all residents with a garden to consider making the change.

“We do encourage residents to buy a brown bin as they are much easier to manoeuvre around the garden, they save time, space and now money and the brown bin is yours to take with you even if you move.”

Residents can put the following in their brown bins; grass cuttings, leaves, shrubs, weeds and bedding plants, hedge trimmings and prunings less than 25mm diameter.

To order a brown bin visit the Customer First centre in St Nicholas Street or call (01723) 232323.
