Pledge “greenwaste”

"I will sign up to a council garden waste collection for about £50 a year but only if 500 other local people will do the same."

— Cllr Jason Kitcat, Green City Councillor, Brighton & Hove

Deadline to sign up by: 1st February 2010
34 people signed up, 466 more were needed

Country: United Kingdom
Place: Brighton & Hove (view map)

More details
Would you like a collection for your garden waste? Unlike many other local areas, Brighton & Hove currently has no council-run green waste collection for cuttings and leaves from gardens.

Many local councils offer such as service for a low annual fee of around £50. The Green councillors would like to see such a service here in Brighton & Hove too. Pledge here to show the Council that a garden waste collection would be viable in our city.

You can see an example of how it works in neighbouring Adur & Worthing,

Note: £50 tends to be the annual fee used in other Councils, but we can't be sure what the precise actual figure will be until we succeed in getting the service up and running.

This pledge is now closed, as its deadline has passed.
