Garden waste collections

The council and our waste collection partners Allerdale Waste Services would like to apologise for the issues which have affected some properties' garden waste collections over the last couple of weeks. The issues have been caused by self-isolation and other staff absences. 

The advice for households who've not had their collection this week is to take bins back in and present them on their next scheduled garden waste collection day.

Households are advised to continue checking our website and social media accounts for the latest information on collections.

Declaration of local connection

Homeless, patients in mental hospitals, remand prisoners

A declaration of local connection can be made at any time throughout the year and will be valid for 12 months, but may be cancelled at any time by the person concerned.

Homeless people may register at the address of a place where they spend a substantial part of their time either during the day or at night (or at the address nearest to that place).

Patients in mental hospitals and remand prisoners may register at the institution where they are currently resident or at the address at which they would be living (or have previously lived). These institutions are not included in the annual canvass.

Electors registered by declaration of local connection under this category can only vote by post or by proxy.

A declaration of local connection must be received by the electoral registration officer within three months of the date of the declaration, otherwise it is invalid.

Do not forget to sign your application, which can be posted to us or handed in at one of our customer service centres. You cannot send the form to us electronically because we need a signature from you.
