HOUSEHOLDERS across Mansfield district who still want their brown garden waste bins emptied will have to pay an annual £25 fee to have them collected.

Mansfield district councillors agreed the move at a full council meeting on Wednesday evening, where a host of other efficiency measures, schemes and cuts designed to bridge a £3.4m funding gap were being discussed.

Councillors also voted on a second 12-month freeze in the authority’s share of this year’s Council Tax bill.
