Just weeks after Powys County Council revealed plans to charge for household garden waste collections it wants to have the views of householders in Newtown and the rest of the county as to how the scheme should be implemented.

Powys County Council is planning to launch a new green garden waste collection service for residents next year. It will see the removal of garden waste skips from recycling centres in Newtown and other community sites in the area.

A month-long consultation has started this week, with the council looking to gauge how much interest there would be for this new service. The consultation will ask views on the frequency of collection, container types, the cost and the payment options that people may prefer.
 
Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Recycling and Waste, said: “A green garden waste collection service would be similar to the kerbside collection householders currently get for glass, plastics and paper but it would be a service that households would pay for so your organic garden waste such as leaves, hedge and grass cuttings is taken away for you.
 
“Garden waste collections are popular in many other areas and allow residents to recycle with ease and without the need to use their own vehicles to transport the green waste themselves.
 
“We would encourage residents to take part in this consultation so that their views can help shape how the service is implemented.”
 
To take part in the consultation visit www.powys.gov.uk/haveyoursay. Anyone who cannot access the survey online can get a paper copy from their local library.
 
The consultation will close on Sunday, 2 December.
