Green Waste Club launches in Herefordshire

There’s good news for thousands of residents in Herefordshire looking for a reliable, easy and affordable way to dispose of their garden waste. The Green Waste Club has now launched in Herefordshire, and as of early July, the service is available to residents in Hereford, Ledbury, Leominster, Bromyard and Ross-On-Wye, and surrounding areas.

This newest Green Waste Club will be operated by an experienced crew from Biffa’s nearby Forest of Dean contract, who will provide fortnightly emptying of GWC wheeled bins into a dedicated 26 tonne collection vehicle. As is usual Club policy, garden waste will not be sent to landfill: instead, it will be recycled into compost at Rose Hill Recycling in Dymock.

A 12 month subscription costs an initial £69, comprising a one-off £15 charge for having a bin delivered and then £54 for the – that’s just £4.50 a month, or the cost of a couple of coffees!

Residents with larger gardens or lawns can get a second GWC wheeled bin to help take care of the extra waste they produce,  and neighbours with small gardens can club together to share the cost of a bin subscription.

Annual or monthly payments can be made by Direct Debit (our customers find this the most convenient option), or you can pay with a debit or credit card. A 10% discount is offered for signing up for 24 months, with a 20% discount for 36 months.

To join there Herefordshire Green Waste Club, call 0800 0858 286 or sign up online at www.greenwasteclub.co.uk

The Miracle of Composting

Long-term Green Waste Club partner The Woodhorn Group has produced an informative video showing how each year, it turns over 75,000 tonnes of garden waste into nutrient-rich organic soil conditioner and compost. Arun’s Green Waste Club has supplied green waste to Woodhorn since 2005.
 
It takes 14 weeks for the carefully-controlled production process to transform the contents of GWC collection bins into the eco-friendly Earth Cycle products made by Woodhorn – a true miracle!

Good News for Tandridge Members!

The continuing popularity of the Tandridge Green Waste Club (it’s grown by 15% in the past year) has led to the introduction of a second collection vehicle and a second collection round.

These will help ensure all Tandridge members continue to get a reliable and efficient service.

But some collection times have changed as a result.

All Tandridge Club members are reminded to ensure their wheeled bin is out by 7am on their collection day.
