  • MK Council to suspend food and garden waste collections

So far at least 125 local authorities have either put a temporary halt on garden waste collections in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, or delayed its reintroduction until the summer.

Dozens more have closed schemes to new subscribers or are warning there may be disruption to the service as they protect staff and cope with them falling sick or self-isolating.

Councils suspending their garden waste collection, which is not a statutory service, include more than 70 authorities who charge fees for picking up material such as plant prunings and grass clippings from householders.

"Please help our waste teams to collect your grey, blue and green bins as normal".

Garden waste collections have been suspended or are not restarting as planned in cities such as Leeds, Bristol and Plymouth, across counties including Dorset, and in seven London boroughs.

They added that updates will be posted on the authority's website. Otherwise leave pruning until September.

Meanwhile, some councils are suggesting mowing the lawn less often and letting a mini meadow appear.
