The Vale of Glamorgan Council is to stop kerbside collections of residents’ “green-bag” garden waste.
At present garden waste is collected every other week (alternating with black-bag refuse collections).
Today the council has announced that from December council-tax payers will have to ring up the council and request collection of their garden waste.
The number to call is 01446 700111 – the Vale’s all-purpose phone number where callers have to listen to a 60-second-long list of announcements before eventually getting through to the switchboard.
The new arrangements will operate for what the Vale Council calls “the slower gardening months” . Normal collections won’t resume until March 2017 .
