A green-minded resident made an environmentally-friendly suggestion for Edgewell Cemetery. Following their idea, Prudhoe Town Council, in partnership with Northumberland County Council, is trialling brown garden waste bins. These are now located alongside general waste bins, in the new and the old cemetery.
It is important that visitors to the cemeteries appreciate that like your own brown bin, these bins are not for general waste. Wrapping and pots must be removed from flowers and plants before they are put in the brown bin.
