Welwyn Hatfield brown bin service rumours quashed.


A Welwyn Hatfield Council spokesman has quashed rumours suggesting that the garden waste service will carry on being free until mid May.

Suggestions were made on social media that a free brown bin service was going to continue until mid May.

However, a council spokesman has told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “The new garden waste service started this week and so far over 16,000 people have subscribed.

“Some of those who have registered more recently may not be aware that it can take up to 10 days for new subscribers to be added to the system, so we will be collecting bins for two weeks to ensure that those who have paid in advance do not miss any collections.

“Following that, we will be issuing notices to people who have presented bins but not paid to remind them that it is now a subscription service.”
