Reminder for gardeners to sign up for garden waste collection service 

Tuesday, 2nd February 2021

WITH green and brown bin collections resuming this week, keen gardeners across are being reminded they need to sign up for the garden waste service to make sure they don’t miss out.

Thousands of local households have already signed up to the garden waste service, which sees grass clippings, hedge cuttings, leaves, weeds, shrub trimmings, as well as short branches and twigs recycled.

All green and brown bin waste is composted, which is good for the environment and can save time consuming trips to local household recycling centres.

2020’s prices have been held and it will continue to cost £36 per garden waste bin for fortnightly collections this year, which works out at around £1.56 for each bin collection.

Councillor Richard Cox, Cabinet Member responsible for Waste at LDC, said:

“I’d like to thank everyone who has already signed up to this year’s garden waste service. Subscribing costs the same regardless of when you sign up, so it makes sense to register as soon as possible.”

A year’s subscription includes 23 garden waste collections between February and mid-December.

Sign up for the garden waste service at or call Lichfield and Tamworth Shared Waste Service on 0345 002 0022.

Please note that you will be taken to Lichfield District Council’s website to subscribe to the garden waste service. Your payment will be processed and your receipt will be issued by Lichfield District Council on behalf of the joint waste service.

Here at Tamworth Informed, we want to say a huge thank you to all NHS Staff, Care Workers, Emergency Service Workers, Shop Staff and anyone else helping to keep us safe, healthy, fed, watered or connected to vital services during this difficult of the 3rd National Lockdown. Please stay safe and look after each other.

On 4 January the Prime Minister announced that England was to enter a National Lockdown, meaning that we should all stay at home.
