Last chance to recycle this year

Share this article

THE last 2012 garden waste collections from homes in Northumberland are due to take place during the weeks beginning November 12 and November 19 – depending on where you live.

The county council provides a collection service for garden waste from properties in a number of areas across the county from spring to autumn each year.

Homes that subscribe receive a wheeled bin which can be filled with leaves, grass, hedge and tree cuttings, and other similar materials.

Waste is turned into compost that can be used as a soil improver or purchased from Household Waste Recovery Centres across Northumberland.
