Solihull Editorial 24th Apr, 2020   0

SOLIHULL Council says it will begin garden waste collections from Monday May 4 following their postponed start due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Residents can check their collection calendar to find out which week their collection will start, the council adds.

Councillor Ken Hawkins, Cabinet Member for Environment & Highways, soid: “I know many residents have been looking after their gardens and enjoying the lovely weather while we are all staying at home, so am delighted that we are now able to start the garden waste collections.

“Thank you to everyone for their patience so far, but please do bear with us at this challenging time as the service may continue to be affected by Covid-19.

“I appreciate residents will be keen to have all their garden waste removed on their first collection, but encourage everyone to please follow a few simple steps to help our crews safely manage the garden waste.

“These include not overfilling or compacting waste in your bin and staying two metres away from our crews. We also cannot take any additional green waste, only what is contained in your bin, so please save any additional waste for the next collection.

“Thank you again for your patience and support for our crews.”

Full details of the simple steps and advice are available on the council’s website along with further information about how collections may be impacted by Covid-19.
