The garden waste service will return to its normal fortnightly collections from next week.
The normal garden waste collection schedule in Vale will resume on 25 October and so from that day onwards, customers can put their brown garden waste bins out on their normal collection day in their recycling week every fortnight.
As mentioned last month, to make up for the disruption to the service we are extending customers' current subscription to the service by three months.
The councils are emailing and writing to their garden waste customers this week letting them know the good news.
Vale garden waste customers will also benefit from the scheduled Extra Garden Waste Week next month (week commencing 8 November) when customers are entitled to put out one extra bin's worth of garden waste that week.

White Horse Community Lottery
The White Horse Community Lottery had its first draw on Saturday 18 September, with many supporters winning a variety of prizes including £25 to 3 extra tickets. In the first draw, one good cause had multiple winners. In addition to this, players of the first five tickets drawn have won £100 to donate to a good cause of their choice.
Since the launch, many good causes have joined the White Horse Community Lottery and can now benefit from vital unrestricted funds and players can support the causes they care about the most. It’s predicted that over the next year, the lottery will raise just over £30,000 for good causes in the district.
Please spread the word to good causes in your area and encourage local voluntary groups and charities to register.
