Ryedale District Council to charge for green bin collections
7:09am Saturday 2nd November 2013 in News
RESIDENTS in Ryedale have been told they will have to pay if they want their garden waste collections to continue.
Ryedale District Council has agreed to introduce an annual £27 fee for each green bin in the district to be emptied.
While the charge will be voluntary, the authority has warned the income is needed to protect the service, which it is not obliged to provide because of its “non-statutory” status.
The system will come into force next June, but other waste services will not be affected.
