Green bins on offer to homes

Have your say

GREEN bins are being offered to households in all areas of Sheffield for the first time – as green sack collections are axed.

Coun Jack Scott, Sheffield Council cabinet member for environment, said: “We are making the change because green bins are more popular than the sacks.

“Some households are clubbing together to share one, bringing down the fee.”

Green bins, for garden waste, can be ordered from contractor Veolia and will be collected from the kerbside.

The annual fee for a green bin is £60 – up from £57.60 last year.
