GARDEN waste customers are running out of time to renew their subscriptions.

Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) are reminding customers they have until May 7 to sign-up again to have their garden waste collected.

"Reminder letters and emails were sent to all 50,000 green-fingered subscribers last month," said a spokesperson for SWP.

"Due to the Covid disruption to garden waste collections last year, current subscriptions were extended. Renewed and new subscriptions will run for 12 months from May 10 this year."

This year, the garden waste service is removing the need for stickers on bin lids.

Crews will be using in-cab technology to know who has subscribed and who needs a collection.

The 25-collection annual service costs £57.20.

New subscribers can sign up at any time but will not get a service until their first scheduled collection after 10 May.
