    Garden Waste Collections 2017 – 2018

  • Suspension of Kerbside Garden Waste Collection November 16, 2017

    Central Bedfordshire Council are temporarily suspending the collection of kerbside garden waste from Monday 4th December 2017 until Friday 2nd March 2018.

    The decision to stop the kerbside collection service during the quietest time of the year for garden waste was made as a part of Central Bedfordshire Council’s financial planning process and comes as a result of Government funding cuts. Council Tax alone doesn’t raise enough to cover the services the council provides and so we are focusing on tailoring services to meet periods of high demands, in this case during the growing season.

    For more information on the suspension please visit:
