Conwy county residents could be forced to pay for the collection of their domestic garden waste.

Just months after Conwy County Borough Council (CCBC) introduced four-weekly waste collection councillors are now set to vote on a paid garden waste pick up.

Councillors voted to consider the paid collection as part of a forward work programme last month and an item with the full details will be presented to a full committee meeting on March 20 and then cabinet on April 9.

A CCBC spokesperson said: "Councillors will be considering the issue of whether to introduce a chargeable domestic garden waste collection service for Conwy County.

"All the options will be explored in a report which is scheduled to go through the Council’s democratic process for discussion before any decisions are made."

If the paid garden collection scheme is voted in, it will also add to the charges for dumping certain items at CCBC tips.

However, CCBC wouldn't be the first county to charge for garden waste collections.

Denbighshire County Council already charge for garden waste collection, with residents paying between £22 and £36 a year, depending on how many 140L green bins or dumpy sack bags they have, if they sign up for the service.
