Don't forget, Tuesday, February 23, will be the earliest opportunity for you to sign up for another growing season of collections from your kerbside of your brown bin. From that date you will be able to quickly and simply register and pay online for garden waste collections from March to December. The online address to use from February 23 will be www.boston.gov.uk/gardenwaste This will be the quickest and easiest method. You can already use this web address to learn more about the service.
Those who register and pay will receive a sticker to apply to each of their brown bins to indicate to the bin men which ones require emptying. Each sticker will be pre-printed with a space for you to write your home address with a permanent marker.
If you do not already have a brown bin for your garden waste and will want to join the service from March, wait until February 23 to get your bin ordered and sign up and pay to join the scheme. Each bin costs £25, including delivery to your home address.
Residents have been urged not to be tempted to put garden waste into their green bin (household waste taken to the Energy from Waste plant near Lincoln, no longer sent to landfill) or their blue bin for recycled materials. This would contaminate the load and the bins will not be emptied.
For anyone who cannot use the online service they can register and pay by coming into the council offices at Municipal Buildings in West Street from February 23.
There will also be opportunities to register and pay by phone by calling 01205 311112 from February 23.
