After an initial suspension of the scheme because of the Covid-19 pandemic, EDC has now restored the garden waste skip scheme for villages. We receive 7 skips per year and the first one is already in place by Crook’s Beck in Warcop.

Many other parts of Eden have kerbside green wheelie bin collections. We have over 200 households in our parish and this would be a preferable scheme for us in the future as it would be easier for the elderly or those who can’t drive.

This is what the skip looked like in June 2018 after about two days!
