Flintshire Council Garden Waste Collection Service

0

Flintshire County Council is reminding residents to renew their subscription to the council’s garden waste collection service, which resumes from March 1, 2022 and will continue until December 10, 2022.

Residents can register at any time of the year, but we encourage citizens to subscribe in advance to ensure they benefit from the full collection service for the season, as well as the preferential subscription rate available before February 28, 2022.

Subscriptions before then, or online throughout the season, are £32 per bin. After March 1, 2022 the standard rate will be £35 if not paying online.

New customers can sign up for the service at any time by visiting the website or calling us on 01352 701234; however, the fees will remain the same. To subscribe online, visit our website.

This year the council will issue a new sticker, which contains an RFID (radio frequency identification) tag, to all households that subscribe to the collection service.

E-tags work the same way as store security tags or stickers and must be affixed to the brown bin and registered at each property.

The electronic sticker is intended to be automatically scanned by a chip reader on the bin lifter at the rear of the bin wagon to confirm that a subscription is in place and allow teams to more easily identify that the bin is eligible for collection.

The chip reader is similar to a supermarket scanner or barcode reader and the only data that will be recorded is that the bin has been collected.

Flintshire County Council Cabinet Member for Streetscene, Councilor Glyn Banks, said:

“We encourage residents to register early for this very popular service so that they can benefit from the full collection service and the reduced rate.

“We want to make sure that we encourage more people to recycle their garden waste. If you have grass clippings, leaves, hedge clippings, twigs, bark, and small branches, you can put them all in your brown bin. Bins cannot be used for fruit and vegetable peelings, food scraps, cardboard, paper, soil and rubble or pet bedding, litter and pet waste.

“All garden waste collected is composted at the Council-run facility in Greenfield. The compost produced can then be collected free of charge by residents of Flintshire at one of our five household recycling centres.
