Garden Waste collections to start in Copeland

Good news has been welcomed in Copeland as Copeland Borough Council have announced they will resume their garden waste collection service on Monday, May 4.

Copeland Borough Council said:

“Despite significant challenges, our collections of refuse and recycling have continued as normal during the Coronavirus outbreak. While the start of garden waste collections has been delayed as we took steps to protect these critical services, households will now receive a green waste collection every four weeks.”

“Our green recycling crews will operate on revised collection rounds each day. Half of households will receive your collection on your scheduled day over the first two weeks (w/c May 4 and 11) and the other half on your scheduled day over the second two weeks (w/c May 18 and 25) and so on.”

”We will share further details on how you can find out which week your bin will be collected will be in due course.”

“We are restricting collections to the contents of residents’ brown bins only, and are unable to take any excess garden waste which cannot fit into the bin.”
