Cumberland Council is pleased to announce that garden waste collections in the former Allerdale area have been extended until 17 November.
Working with our waste contractor, Allerdale Waste Services, the council have agreed to extend garden waste collections which were due to end this month until 17 November which is the same date as collections end for the year in the former Copeland area.
Waste collection calendars have been amended online and residents are encouraged to check as to when their revised last collection date is by visiting the Cumberland Council website.
Cllr Denise Rollo, Cumberland Council’s Executive Member for Sustainable, Resilient and Connected Places, said:
“We’ve listened to residents’ feedback and are pleased that Allerdale Waste Services have been able to put measures in place to extend the garden waste collections. The unseasonably warmer weather we’ve been experiencing will no doubt mean the last grass cut of the year is later than usual, so we’re pleased that crews are still able to provide this service.”
