“If you don’t want to be mowed out with grass cuttings, snowed under with leaves or piled high with prunings then don’t forget to sign up,” he urged.

“It’s been a great summer so far for gardeners and we’re keen everyone knows it’s time to sign up or renew to get the fortnightly service,” he added.

“Thousands of gardeners are already booked onto the scheme for the next year which runs until June 2017,” explained Carole Taylor, Pendle Council’s Waste Management Co-ordinator. “The popular service costs less than 60p a week as the annual subscription is £30 per green bin.”

Renewing subscribers can pay for their next year of fortnightly garden waste collections at quoting the reference number on their renewal letter.

And new subscribers can simply key their address or postcode in to check that they are on the garden waste rounds or call the Contact Pendle centre on 661743.

This year subscribers can also use an automated telephone payment system by calling 661743 and then when prompted pressing 1 to pay, via a credit or debit card.

“We know that thousands of people in Pendle who love to garden are keen for us to recycle their garden waste,” said Carole. “We collect almost 3,000 tonnes of garden waste a year which is recycled into compost, helping us recycle more for Pendle.”
