Bin Collection Alert : Garden waste collections Nedderton and Hepscott outskirts

Effective: 3 May 2017 to 31 May 2017

Due to the high level of demand for garden waste collections in the Nedderton and outskirts of Hepscott we are having to move some properties onto a different week for garden waste.
Residents in the affected area will receive a letter. This letter will tell them that their garden waste collections will be fortnightly commencing Tuesday 9th May. This means that those people will actually get an extra garden waste collection.
If you don't receive a letter then your collections are unaffected. No other parts of Northumberland are affected and no rubbish and recycling bins are affected.
