Be part of the Great British Spring Clean – a national campaign that invites local people to help keep our towns, villages, streets and countryside clean.
Stondon is doing its bit on the 4th March 2018
How you can help..
By volunteering, you can help remove the litter that can often blight our streets, parks and beautiful, countryside.
Stondon Parish Council is helping to organise this event locally on Sunday 4 March 2018. Cllr Jon Wallace - email@example.com is co-ordinating the event. Please drop him a line or give me a call.
Be proud of where you live
We are justifiably proud of where they live and of our surroundings. The Great British Spring Clean offers us the chance to volunteer and make a difference locally. It also gives us the opportunity to get together – neighbours, families, friends and colleagues – and build a real sense of community around a common cause.
Whether you are an individual, group or organisation it’s easy to get involved. Visit the Great British Spring Clean website (link opens in new window) to find out what is happening locally.
The majority of events will be taking place between Friday 2 and Sunday 4 March 2018.
Kerbside collection of household garden waste will be suspended across Central Bedfordshire over the winter months.
The collections will be suspended from Monday, 4 December 2017 until Friday 2, March 2018 inclusive. Residents are encouraged to check their last garden waste collection date for their area, which will be either the week commencing Monday 20 or Monday 27 November.
The decision to stop the kerbside collection service during the quietest time of the year for garden waste was made as part of the council’s financial planning process, and comes as a result of Government funding cuts. Council Tax alone doesn’t raise enough to cover all the services the council provides, and so the council focuses on delivering services that meet the periods of high demand, in this case restricting garden waste collections to during the growing season.
Residents can use our tidy tips or compost at home over the winter
During the suspension, garden waste can still be recycled at the council’s recently improved Household Waste Recycling Centres (tidy tips).
Alternatively, residents with enough space in their gardens are encouraged to compost at home. All Central Bedfordshire residents are eligible for a discount on compost bins and accessories under a council scheme to encourage composting.
