Copeland borough council announcement: Garden waste collections restart this week.

Our online calendars are now up-to-date to reflect your new collection dates. Please note that the day of the week your garden waste is collected remains the same but we are collecting every four weeks instead of every two weeks in the current circumstances.

If you are scheduled a collection on Bank Holiday Friday this week, it will take place as planned.
