Bedford Borough Council is reminding residents that garden waste collections will resume on Friday 1 March.
Don’t forget to put your green lidded garden waste bin out alongside your recycling bin by 6am on your next recycling collection day. You can check your collection days on the Council’s online collection day finder.
“Please make sure all of your garden waste is contained and loose within your green lidded bin,” said a Council spokesperson. “The crews will not remove any garden waste left out next to your bin.”
