Green Bin charge for Collection

Rutland County Councillors will discuss the introduction of an annual charge for green waste services at their next Full Council meeting on Monday 11 September 2017.

The plans would see a charge of £35 per year introduced from April 2018, helping the Council to reduce the overall cost of collecting and disposing of Rutland's waste, which has risen to almost £2million a year.

While more and more green waste is being produced locally, the amount of money the Council is able to recover from recycled materials has fallen. This has contributed to a rise in the overall cost of our waste services, meaning it's becoming too expensive to continue providing green waste collection for free. We need to look at alternatives and this is felt to be a reasonable change that would help to protect the service long-term. The proposal would not apply to general household waste or recycling and there would be no change to how regularly bins

are collected.
