Tewkesbury Borough Council’s garden waste collection service will resume from Monday 4 May.

The paid-for service has been suspended since 30 March due to Covid-19, but now that staffing levels have become more stable, garden waste collection is now able to start again.

Customers of the Garden Waste Club who have accumulated extra garden waste in the time the service has suspended can put extra garden waste out for collection, provided that it is presented alongside their brown bin in a sturdy bag or container – this is so it can be safely loaded into the vehicle. Crews will be unable to collect loose garden waste. This should be left for the next collection and put it in the brown bin.

Anyone who is unsure of their bin collection day should check the collection calendar at tewkesbury.co.uk/waste-and-recycling
