People in Lichfield and Burntwood are being urged to sign up for their 2019 brown bin collections.
Residents will need to sign up and pay the fee in order to have garden waste collected in 2019.
Councillor David Leytham, Cabinet member for operational services, leisure and waste, said: “Thank you to everyone who signed up to our garden waste service in the last year.
“We’re now reminding local residents that they will need to sign up again if they would like their brown bins emptied in 2019.
“It costs the same regardless of when you sign up during the year, and your annual subscription will always end in December. Because of this it makes sense to register for 2019 before the first collection in January, so you can get a full year’s worth of collections.”
People can sign up online or by calling 0345 002 0022. Registered householders will then need to put a sticker on their bins to show they have paid.
Cllr Leytham added: “It is important to remember that your brown bin will not be emptied in 2019 unless you are signed up and you’ve displayed your new sticker on your garden waste bin.
“We are also encouraging anyone who signed up in 2018 not to cover up their 2018 sticker with their new sticker. This is so we know to continue to empty your garden waste bin for the rest of 2018.”
