Apply now for the new garden waste service

by

Raking up autumn leaves (large version)If you live in Purbeck or parts of West Dorset* you have until 31 July to apply for an optional, chargeable garden waste service, beginning in November.

By having your garden waste collected from the kerbside, you could save time, fuel and money and help the environment by cutting down on trips to your local household recycling centres and the need for bonfires.

The service offers a fortnightly collection and a choice of bins:

  • 240-litre wheelie bin £35 per year
  • 120-litre reusable bag for £25 per year

You can apply and pay by using the quick and secure online form at http://www.dorsetforyou.com/recyclefordorset/gardenwaste or by calling 01305 221040.

*Areas of West Dorset included are Dorchester, Broadmayne, the Cerne and Piddle Valleys, Charminster, Crossways, Osmington, Owermoigne Puddletown and Tolpuddle.

The garden waste collected in Dorset is taken for natural composting, where it is turned into high-grade, soil-improving compost.
