Residents can now renew or subscribe for their green waste collection service starting fortnightly from March 30.

For the annual fee of £25, East Lindsey District Council will empty a green waste bin every fortnight for the year with a break over Christmas and the New Year.

Anyone who currently subscribes to the Green Waste collection service will need to re-subscribe by February 27 to ensure a seamless transition to their new subscription. The last collection for anyone who does not re-subscribe will be during the two weeks prior to March 30.

Collections for anyone who subscribes for the first time by February 27 will start in the fortnight from March 30. Residents can still subscribe after this date, but the start date may be later and the cost will remain the same.

The Council’s Portfolio Holder for the Environment, Councillor Steve O’Dare, said: “In 2014 the District Council re-introduced all year round green waste collection again with around 32,000 households subscribing. We are now entering our second year and would urge all residents requiring the service to sign up now to ensure their collection starts the fortnight from March 30, depending on their collection day.”

From mid-March, residents who have subscribed will receive a letter with full details including what time to present the bin, their collection day and a sticker for the bin.
