Sefton MBC have started a public consultation over a proposal to charge for the Green Waste Collection service.
An opt-in charge for the green waste service was recommended by Cabinet as an option for approval and agreed by full Council on 28th February as part of the Two Year Financial Plan and Revenue Budget for 2013/14.
To help reduce a deficit of around £51 million and provide an additional saving the council has agreed in principle to:
a) Charging for the collection of “green” or garden waste from residential properties in the borough
b) Offering the service to any household within the borough that is willing to pay for a green waste collection service, including areas where the service is not currently provided.
The new proposal is to provide a fortnightly green waste collection service (via a 240 green wheelie bin for use as stated above), to any household willing to pay for the service on an annual basis (January to December).
Sefton MBC want to know what you think of this proposal.
