Council may charge for green bin

BOSTON residents may soon be asked to pay £20 for a new bin to collect garden waste in a new council scheme.

Following a ‘green waste’ pilot last year, in which garden matter was collected from a third of properties in the borough, the council is hoping to introduce the scheme borough-wide.

If it is approved by the authority, all borough residents who require a bin will be asked to pay £20 towards the cost.
