Autumn leaves update


The Environmental Service’s six week annual leaf clearance project starts on 29 October. In previous years we have tried to collect as many leaves as possible for composting, which contributed to our recycling rate. Unfortunately this year, the Environment Agency has issued guidance banning collected street leaves from composting facilities. This means we will not be able to compost the leaves we collect and they will not count towards our recycling rates. This gives us a special challenge to provide the same excellent service to our residents, while trying to minimise the tonnage collected.
