HDC Notice – Please No Bonfires

We have received several reports that some residents are burning garden waste at their properties.
Please do not burn garden waste, or any other waste, under any circumstances and be mindful of neighbours and fellow community members. Smoke and smells from bonfires can aggravate respiratory problems such as asthma and bronchitis and affect those with heart complaints.
Please either compost garden waste, keep it in a safe place or put into your brown-topped garden waste bin, as the service is currently operating as normal. Please continue to put into general waste in your green-topped refuse bin.
Visit our website for information about the adverse health effects of smoke: http://orlo.uk/D3dp2
Home compost bins are a great way to help reduce garden and food waste and creates great fertiliser for your garden. Find out more http://orlo.uk/yoKeo
