Three Rivers District Council is looking at the future of brown bin collections, in particular whether to continue to collect garden waste as a service chargeable to residents, or to discontinue collections of brown bins altogether.
The Council are asking residents to have their say through a public consultation.
It’s a short, easy to use survey about brown bin habits, with nine questions and a comment box.
6. Depending on the financial situation in the coming year the Council may be faced with the difficult decision of whether to stop collecting garden waste altogether, or to continue with the service on a ‘paid for’ basis. Ignoring for a moment the amount charged (see next question) which option would you favour?
Discontinue the garden waste service
Charge residents for the collection of garden waste.
