Garden waste collections in County Durham are due to resume from Tuesday 18th March.
Residents who are part of the scheme will receive a leaflet detailing their specific collection dates, which can also be checked using the My Durham facility on the council’s website at www.durham.gov.uk
Residents are advised to put their garden waste bin out by 7am on their collection day.
Small branches, flowers, leaves, grass cuttings, weeds, prunings and hedge clippings can all be placed in garden waste collection bins.
People are asked to put garden waste straight into the bin without using plastic bags to avoid contamination.
