Charnwood Borough Council offer a service for taking your garden waste.

For an annual fee they issue a 240-litre brown wheelie bin and empty it every fortnight (apart from a two-week period over Christmas).

The year-round service is easy to join and costs £40 if payment is by annual direct debit. If you pay by any other method, the charge is £45 per year.

More than 32,000 people who use the service and in 2018/19 10,900 tonnes of garden waste was collected which was turned into compost or reused on farmland.

Time4Leicestershire

An innovative scheme where residents are rewarded for helping others in their community is launching across Leicestershire. Time4Leicestershire is a new skills exchange initiative, which will see people carrying out good deeds for others and being rewarded in return by having somebody do a good deed for them.

Part of the national Timebanking UK initiative, Time4Leicestershire is being run by our Public Health team, who are encouraging people to sign up, register what skills they can offer and see what expertise they could benefit from. The scheme is designed to help people swap skills, connect with their community by meeting new people, contribute to their local community and receive help or support with practical tasks, such as gardening.

Timebanking differs from volunteering, as people swap skills. For every hour of time somebody gives helping, they receive an hour's time credit to bank and use on somebody helping them for an hour.

To find out more about the scheme and what skills people are looking for, or to see when the next information events will be taking place, visit the website below or call 0116 305 0705. » Less
