A NEW garden waste collection has been introduced for residents in Conwy county.

The new subscription service will start at the end of March, with collections taking place on a fortnightly basis, using wheelie bins. It will cost £35 for 12 months, £1.35 per collection.

Bryson Recycling is delivering this new service on behalf of Conwy County Borough Council. Vincent Thomas, the company’s general manager, said: “We are delighted to be launching this new service in partnership with the council and look forward to working with them to help residents recycle from home which will benefit the local environment”. Cllr Greg Robbins, cabinet member for environment, said: “We know residents value having their garden waste collected and we’re pleased we can continue this at a reasonable cost.”
