East Northamptonshire’s Green Waste Club has been given an overwhelming vote of approval by members of the Biffa-operated garden waste collection scheme.

In a survey of club members conducted earlier this year, more than 95 per cent of East Northamptonshire respondents said they were satisfied with the Green Waste Club and the reliability of its fortnightly service.

More than nine out of 10 also felt the club delivered value for money.

Nearly all of those members who had seen or spoken with Biffa’s collection crews were satisfied with their service attitude.

The vast majority (95 per cent) were also satisfied with the quality and range of information received.

Biffa’s national Green Waste Club manager Lucy Stephens said: “The club provides a valued service for local residents, so it’s important that we understand how they feel about it.

“The vast majority of East Northamptonshire members rate the Club highly which is good news as it shows we’re meeting their expectations.”

She added that East Northamptonshire’s survey results reflect the overall feedback from all six Green Waste Clubs operated by Biffa, and which have a total membership of nearly 47,000.

Biffa established East Northamptonshire’s Green Waste Club in 2007 to provide fortnightly collections of garden waste from local residents.

They pay a subscription to join the club and receive their own 240-litre wheeled bin which Biffa crew empty every fortnight.

Nationally, the Green Waste Club’s members have so far helped to recycle more than 82,000 tonnes of garden waste which is turned into compost.

This helps improve the environment and also reduces refuse disposal costs.
