brownbinSad to say that Bradford Council have decided that in the face of Government Cuts regardless of how much money Bradford takes out of Ilkley in the rates and how litle seems to return to Ilkley in services, they have decided to charge for emptying of the brown Garden Waste bins throughout the Bradford District.

The annual charge as from June 2016 is going to be £35 per annum, payable in advance and no refund if you forget to put your bin out on one of the 11 collection dates during June 2016 to May 2017. If you wish to continue having your brown bins emptied after 31st May 2016, you need to pay your fee and get a licence sticker for your bin. No sticker, no collection!

The only bit of good news is that if you pay this extra fee before May 15th 2016, there is a 20% early bird offer which brings the fee down to £28. The option to purchase a licence comes into effect as from 1st April 2016.
