The decision to postpone garden waste collections was made to ensure City of York Council can maintain frontline services – including household waste collections – and to protect frontline crews from unnecessary risk. The situation will be kept under constant review, with a view to resuming garden waste collections as soon as practically possible.

Cllr Paula Widdowson, Executive Member for Climate Change, said: “This isn’t a decision we’ve taken lightly and this doesn’t mean we don’t want residents to garden. In some cases, this is more important than ever to keep active – particularly when self-isolating.

“We are encouraging residents to recycle and compost where possible and to support this, we have published advice for easy composting at home.

“If you’re unable to compost, then we’re asking residents to store their garden waste when possible, and we will collect it at a later date.”
