pounds 600,000 pilot scheme to go green.

FAMILIES in south War-wickshire will be going green - by recycling garden rubbish.

A pilot scheme to collect green waste from 16,000 homes begins in November. The collection is once a fortnight.

The experiment begins after a pounds 600,000 green waste contract was awarded to Biffa Waste Services by Stratford District Council.

And the council aims to give all its 50,000 households a green wheelie bin by April 2005.

Cllr Alan Akeister, portfolio holder for environmental services, said: "I am very proud to say that the green garden waste collection is a further enhancement of the council's policy of helping the district's residents achieve their request to increase recycling.

"This started with news-paper collections and was further extended with the black boxes which allow the recycling of paper, clothing, glass, aluminium and tin cans.

"This will also be a quality service, with Biffa's education officer working closely with the public to maximise the recycling available."
