English councils could soon be providing free curbside garden waste collections

The Garden News reports that the government are looking at a scheme in England to scrap the fee that most councils now charge for collecting garden green waste which ranges from £24-£96/year. My local council has charged £42/year for two years now but as I have an allotment plot I chose to transport my green waste there to compost it rather to pay the council to get rid of it.
I wish they had a weekly/ monthly junk collection. I know you can book for stuff to be collected but it would be good if a lorry did the rounds once a week.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
For a fortnightly collection, the cost is £57 per bin pa.
