Many residents had been wondering when their garden waste collections would start again and Harrow Council have now announced that they will resume on May 11.
The council thanked its residents for their patience during the COVID-19 emergency, but also say that the Civic Ammenity site will remain closed for the time being.
There will also be refunds for the missed collections during the suspension and this will all be paid within three months.
Conservative councillor for Pinner, Norman Stevenson pushed for the collections to resume due to an increase in fly-tipping in the whole of the borough.
He said: “The closures of tip and the cancellation of the waste collections meant that reports of fly-tipping in the area had increased, so we thought it was important to ensure that they resumed as quickly as possible.
“The council are still enforcing fines if anyone is caught fly-tipping, and it’s important that we don’t take our eye off the ball regarding this situation during the current pandemic. I think it’s really good news that the services are now up and running again.”
