Highland Council's garden waste customers have until this Monday to order their permits to ensure delivery in time for the first collections of the new service year.

The brown bin collections will run from the beginning of this September to August 31, next year, with a winter break in the months of December, January and February.

The cost of a garden waste permit for 2021/2022 season is £46.35 which is a three per cent rise (£1.35) on last year.

The council has contacted all existing customers via email and letter to remind them of the deadline to renew their permits.

A spokesperson said: "The fortnightly collection service is easy and convenient to use and accepts a wide range of garden material including grass cuttings, leaves, hedge clippings, weeds, flower, plants and small branches.

"The service is optional, and householders are also able to take their garden waste along to their local recycling centre free of charge."

Garden waste permits can be purchased on-line here or by calling the Highland Council’s service centre on 01349 886660.
