GREEN-FINGERED Poole residents can now sign up to next year's garden waste service.

Garden waste bins are collected fortnightly between February and December 2018, and are available to every household in the borough.

Residents wishing to receive all 22 collections for the standard price of £39.70 per 240 litre bin must register by December 22 this year.

Access to Leisure and Learning cardholders are entitled to a 50 per cent discount on the first bin ordered.

Councillor John Rampton, cabinet portfolio holder for environmental services at the Borough of Poole, said: "The garden waste scheme remains very popular among residents, with an increase in subscriptions annually.

"We are pleased to offer the continued, extended garden waste service following customer requests to cover periods of very late leaf fall,"
