Gardeners facing charge for waste disposal in Cornwall

Related Stories

Householders in Cornwall wanting to dispose of garden waste will soon have to buy a special wheelie bin and pay for it to be emptied.

The bin will cost up to £18 and gardeners will have to pay up to £23 annually for the waste to be disposed of.

The subscription service means only those registered with the council would have their waste collected.

Councillors said it would help to save taxpayers "more than £350,000 a year".
