TODAY is the day - sign up for garden waste collections
With a simple click of your mouse, you can make this year's gardening duties so much easier by signing up for brown bin garden waste collections.
For just £30 a year, no increase in the past four years, Boston Borough Council will take your garden waste away every fortnight from this April to the end of November and then again from the end of February, 2020, to the end of March, 2020.
Go now to www.boston.gov.uk/gardenwaste
Grass cuttings, leaves, hedge and shrub trimmings, weeds and plants can all go in the brown bin.
You could even get the coming season's service for free - all existing and new online direct debit customers can enter a prize draw and ten lucky winners will receive the 2019/20 garden waste collection service for FREE, to the value of £30.
Sign up online today - no queuing, no waiting, no journey out into the cold and wet. There has been no price increase from last year - it will still be £30 for the collection of a single bin and £15 for each additional bin. Still great value for money at just £1.50 per collection. New customers will have to pay £25 for the purchase and delivery of their brown bin.
Collections for the new 2019/20 growing season will start in April. Existing customers who signed up last year will receive the last of the current growing season's collection until the end of March. Those who signed up online AND made a direct debit payment arrangement AND want to continue in April need do nothing more. Those who signed up online by debit or credit card can go to www.boston.gov.uk/gardenwaste from today to sign up and pay again.
Once we have received your payment you will receive your 2019/20 stickers. You must write on your stickers, in permanent ink, your property number/name, street name and postcode. This will help safeguard your brown bin (which you own) and ensures your continued access to the service. Your sticker must be visible on your bin from April 1.

- Not online? Don't worry, you can sign up for this service in person at Municipal Buildings in West Street, Boston, or by phone (01205 311112) but not until Monday, February 11.
- You can take your garden waste to the tip in Bittern Way, but why give up your free time and mess up your car?
