Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) carried out a waste consultation in 2018 which revealed that residents wanted the option to recycle more of their garden waste. In response, CBC are now offering each household a 240-litre Garden Waste Bin to replace the garden waste bags that are currently in place. This isn’t compulsory – if you wish you can continue using your green bags as normal. If you’d like a bin, visit www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/garden-bins to place your order. A bin should then be delivered to you within 8 weeks.
