Brown bin service suspended

Tewkesbury Borough Council have said, "Due to the weather this week normal bin collections didn’t happen on Wednesday so the refuse collectors are a day behind meaning that garden waste collections have been suspended this week.

Side waste can be left in black bags next to your bin on the next collection but the bags must be open so that the refuse collectors can see inside."

TBC apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

When the service resumes, brown bin users will be able to use the service to recycle Christmas trees (just the real ones!).  Just put it out for collection on your scheduled garden waste collection day along with your green bin and TBC will collect it for you. They ask that, if it is larger than six foot, you cut it in half.

If you're not signed up to the brown bin service, you can recycle your real Christmas tree at the Hempsted amenity site, Over Farm Market or a number of garden centres in the area, listed here.
