The Brown Bin is Back

Brown garden waste bin collections start up again in Walsall Metropolitan Borough this week – and gardening enthusiasts and residents planning an outdoor makeover or pre-spring clear up are being urged to make use of Walsall’s garden waste recycling scheme.

The borough’s ‘brown bin’ service is now re-commencing its fortnightly collections from all low rise properties (including houses) across the borough following the winter close down.

Residents are reminded exactly what they can put in their brown bins:

Grass cuttings, leaves, weeds, tree and shrub prunings, hedge clippings and old plants and flowers should go in the brown bins and the waste is then converted into compost.

Calendars  have been  sent to remind residents of brown bin collection dates.

Cabinet member for the environment Cllr Tom Ansell said: “We’re all looking forward to the end of winter – but spring does bring a lot of extra work in the garden.

“Now is the perfect time to start clearing out your garden ready for the Spring and we are delighted to be able to offer this brown bin service for our residents.”

If residents have any queries about waste or recycling they should contact the call centre on 01922 653344 for further advice and assistance.
