Households in Lichfield and Burntwood have been told they won’t pay a higher price to have their brown bins emptied in 2020.
Lichfield District Council says the annual cost will remain at this year’s price of £36 for the regular garden waste collections.
The local authority said the fee will see brown bins emptied “a maximum” of 23 times a year.
Councillor Liz Little, Cabinet member for recycling and waste, said: “I’d like to thank everyone who signed up to our garden waste service in the last year.
“We’re now reminding all our residents that they will need to sign up again if they would like their brown bins emptied in 2020.
“It costs the same regardless of when you sign up during the year, and your annual subscription will always end in December. This is why it makes sense to register before the first collection in 2020, so you can get a full year’s worth of collections.”
People can sign up for the 2020 garden waste service at www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/mygardenbin or by calling 0345 002 0022.
“It is important to remember that your brown bin will not be emptied in 2020 unless you are signed up and have displayed your new sticker on your garden waste bin,” Cllr Little added.
“We are also encouraging anyone who signs up not to cover up their 2019 sticker with their new one, so our crews know to continue to empty your garden waste bin for the rest of 2019.”
