Green waste collections to continue – if you pay

Croydon Council’s green waste collections are to become a paid-for service from April after 10,000 local residents voted for it to continue in that form, rather than being discontinued altogether.

According to a Council statement, the service is currently funded by all 147,000 Croydon households but used by less than a quarter. Making the service paid-for will save Croydon taxpayers £1.5m per year amid growing budget pressures and reduced Government funding, it added.

The council will update residents in the coming weeks on how the new service will work and how to pay.

Householders can register through their login for My Account from this Friday (29 January) by visiting www.croydon.gov.uk. Those without a computer can either register at their local library or with help from council staff at Access Croydon.

Once you have paid for the new service you will receive a garden waste wheeled bin and will be able to view your collection day online in My Account.
