CUSTOMERS of a garden waste scheme are to benefit from an efficient new environmentally friendly payment scheme.

From today (May 1) anyone wishing to use the scheme operated by Vale of White Horse and South Oxfordshire District Councils will be able to sign up to the service with just a single call.

The paperless Direct Debit system will also help keep council costs down.

New customers can sign up from April 23, while existing users will be contacted by Capita, the councils’ joint finance contractor, two months prior to their renewal date to explain the transfer.

Councillor Reg Waite, cabinet member for waste services at the Vale of White Horse District Council, said: “It will be much easier for people to sign up to what is a very successful service.”
