Residents will be given an additional opportunity this year to register for a permit to receive collections of garden waste from East Lothian Council.

The second registration period of 2024 will be open from 26 August to 6 September.

This follows the first registration period which saw around 19,600 properties being registered to receive a fortnightly garden waste service from July.

The Council is in the process of finalising the routing and schedule for those who have already signed up. Residents who have registered during this period will shortly receive their permit sticker and collection calendars.

Garden waste permits cost £35 per property.

Residents wishing to sign up for the service between 26 August and 6 September will be able to do so online until 3.30pm on Friday 6 September.

Those who sign up during this window will have their collections run from 21 October 2024 to 1 September 2025.
