Council to improve waste collections

Council to improve general waste and recycling collections over festive period

Wednesday 28 December 2016

Due to the extra waste people will have over Christmas and New Year, refuse collectors will be out in force ensuring residents’ bins are emptied.

For the next two weeks, the council will concentrate on collecting bulky items, excess waste and rubbish from people’s general waste and recycling bins.

To do this, the council will suspend brown bin collections for one cycle only from Tuesday 3 January. Brown bin collections will resume from Tuesday 17 January.

Cllr Neil Poole, cabinet member for Environment at North Lincolnshire Council, said:

“Residents are telling us they want a better service. We have listened and are now responding. This blitz on rubbish will mean our refuse collectors will be out in force in the next couple of weeks emptying people’s general waste bins, recycling bins and bulky items that may have accumulated over the festive period. Where collections have been missed, we will take any excess waste.

“This is our busiest time of year when we collect the most waste over Christmas and New Year.

“I am confident that our refuse collectors will be doing all they can to ensure your festive and any other waste is collected, so please bear with us.”
