This page tells you what bins, boxes and other recycling containers are used in North Lincolnshire and what items can be put into each one.
See our Guide to Recycling in North Lincolnshire leaflet [PDF, 2Mb].
When we recycle, recyclable materials are reprocessed into new products, and as a result the amount of rubbish sent to landfill or incineration reduces. It also reduces the need to use natural resources such as wood, coal and oil.
Recycling materials used in the manufacturing process uses much less energy than producing new products which requires extracting, refining and transport and process raw materials.
As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change. Current UK recycling is estimated to save more than 18 million tonnes of CO2 a year – the equivalent to taking five million cars off the road.
Please ensure your bins, boxes and bags are put out for collection at the edge of the property where it meets the pavement by 7am on the correct day and taken in when empty.
