North Kesteven District Council has today (Friday) announced that it has plans to charge residents £25 per year for the use of green-waste bins after eight years of providing this service for free, saving £770,000 in their annual budget.
There will also be a £10 charge per additional bin. The plans will go before the executive committee on Tuesday, December 4.
