As part of an economy cut by East Herts Council, there will be a change to your brown waste collection.
From April 1 this year, you will have to pay a fee to continue to use your brown waste bin. The cost will be £49 for a year (starting 2021/22), but there’s a £4 discount if you sign up by direct debit before March 15.
If you need a second brown bin, the bin itself will cost £35, while collection will be another £49.
If you don’t want to pay the charge, you will have to dispose of your own garden waste and use the black bin for food or – and we’d very much recommend this – home compost it.
