Ryedale council offers green waste tips for winter period
8:40am Wednesday 4th December 2013 in News
COUNCIL bosses in Ryedale have put tips on how to deal with garden waste online after collections stopped over winter.
Green waste will not be collected in the district until the start of March after the service was cut back because of funding cuts.
Ryedale District Council says the suspension saves money which can be used for other areas and also reduces emissions from vehicles, while it also means fewer bins have to be replaced.
The advice has been provided at ryedale.gov.uk
Phil Long, the authority’s head of environment, said: “The continued and unprecedented scale of cuts in Government funding means increasingly difficult decisions now have to be taken by the council regarding delivery of services.”
