Green waste service will return soon

ONE of the county council’s kerbside collection schemes will be up and running again in a few weeks.

Those who sign up or renew their subscription will have their garden waste collected by the Northumberland authority for a fee of £24 for 20 collections.

The cost of the fortnightly service has increased by £1 from last year and it hopes that this is still seen as good value for money.

Residents interested in joining the scheme can find out more by calling 0845 6006400. Existing customers are required to pay by March 31 to continue to receive the collections.
