Just seen this posted on Facebook. Must admit I wasn't aware of this - guess I should have been. Others may not know?

been like that for a few years in Pendle, twenty five quid per annum, per bin. They are happy if you put green waste in the general waste bins, which are emptied every fortnight.

Seems like good value for money sending them out last year at £60 a pop. As you. Say the streets will be full of them as I bet no-one will want to take up space in the garden for something that's not used. Well thought out move just like the tip permits!!

Re Candys comments, can we find a definitive answer please. Can we put grass cuttings in the green bin together with our household rubbish?

14. I donít have a brown bin. Is it OK to put my garden waste in my
refuse bin?

No. In certain parts of the district, the Council provides a garden waste collection service. If your area has a garden waste collection service you should request a free garden waste (brown) bin. Garden waste will not be collected in a green bin.

For residents living in an area without a garden waste collection service, we encourage residents to compost wherever possible or take it to one of our Household Waste Recycling Centres or, wherever possible, to consider composting their garden waste, as an alternative to disposal in their bins. Composting is an inexpensive natural process that creates a valuable and nutrient rich food for your garden. Residents should apply via www.getcomposting.com or call 0844 571 4444 quoting reference GEN05L for a reduce price compost bin.

Some other helpful information:

Bradford District (which like it or not includes Craven Ward ) was successful in it's application for Government funding for the brown bin garden waste scheme in 2013. That funding has ended but the government has also cut funding to Bradford (remember this includes us) by £214 million since 2010, with a forecast further loss of 20% before the next election.
If you value the garden waste service you can pay for it with the early bird offer. If you don't or can't, you can use the tip and/or make good compost.
Understand though - nothing will be free or fair under the Tories soon. We'll all find that out before too long, one way or another.

From the KN

Fifty fines have so far been issued to Keighley people for flouting new stricter bin collection rules, it has been revealed.

The new restrictions, which bar people from leaving extra bin bags for collection, have been piloted in Keighley and began rolling out across the district yesterday.

The changes mean Bradford Council will only collect one general-waste green bin per household each week, and lids must be shut.

Anyone who fails to abide by the rules will receive a warning letter and then face a £60 fine if they continue to ignore the regulation.

1/2hour searching Google appears to show more Labour councils than none Labour charge for garden waste collections and Bradford are right up there with the most expensive!!

My point exactly Robin.
I'm not going to get all political as there's more than enough of that on here and enough council bashing, right or wrong, but we pay council tax for just such items as bin collection!

Actually green waste collections are not a statutory duty of the council and never has been. However it would be reasonable to look at the cost of the council paying(which they do) for some of this now ending up in landfill and paying to clear up flytipping plus of course the thousands of pounds that will now be wasted in paying for hundreds of brown bins.

I note that those who pay the annual fee for the brown bin service will be issued with a licence sticker to attach to their bin. Displaying the sticker will signal to the bin men to empty the said bin.
As it is a sticker, I suggest that many of these stickers will quickly become unstuck and re-stuck onto the bins of those who have not paid for one. In such instances, will replacement licence stickers be provided free of charge? I doubt it.

Bradford met cutting this "service" due to government cuts? This article.(amongst others, proves it to be a complete lie! m.keighleynews.co.uk/news/14503029.Councillor_defends___15_000_spending_on_sculpture/

I would suggest Blaming the cuts on the government is not totally wrong.
However the idiots running Bradford can still find money for their own pet projects, like this sculpture, and the grand new swimming pool planned for the city centre, leaving us in the sticks to grovel for the crumbs from their table.

Having just read this articular; the shear Hypocrisy of Val Slater defies understanding,
in it she states, "But having started doing work you can't just pull the plug."
Yet she comes to Silsden and spends £2,500 of councils money pulling the plug on the partially completed floodgate, which could have been completed for less money, why?
