Online ordering service launched for garden waste collections

Grass cuttings, leaves and dead plants can now be disposed of more easily with the launch of a new online ordering service for garden waste collections.

Residents across the district can now order a 240 litre brown bin from Malvern Hills District Council at the click of a button via their PC, tablet or mobile phone.

So far 3,900 people are signed up for the service, which costs just £65 a year. Bins will be collected fortnightly from residents' doorsteps in the same way their rubbish or recycling is.

All garden waste will be taken away and composted to be used again by farmers, allotment owners or in the soil industry.

Residents can order as many additional bins as they want, at a cost of £55.

Ivor Pumfrey, head of Community Services at Malvern Hills District Council, said: "We know our garden waste collections are popular with residents and we are delighted to be able to make it even easier for people to order this convenient service, which will save both time and effort."
