The Council is set to stick with its decision to end green bin emptying in October each year.
The service now starts again in April.
A Council report claims that most residents either store up their green waste in winter or take it to one of York’s two civic amenity recycling centres.
The report does not say how much waste was collected in the additional collection arranged in January of this year.
The Council accepts though that some garden waste found its way into grey bins, adding to the Landfill Tax burden that must be funded by Council Taxpayers.
