North Lincolnshire Council will continue to collect household waste. However, from today, Tuesday 24 March until further notice the brown bin collection service will be suspended in order to concentrate on core services and protect the vulnerable.
Please do not put your brown bin out for collection. Bin collections dates can be found at the bins, waste and recycling page on the North Lincolnshire Council website.
Residents are urged not to take the contents of their brown bin to Household Recycling Centres (tips) but to compost them at home. More information about this is on the home composting page on the North Lincolnshire Council website.
In recent days there has been a significant increase in the number of residents visiting Household Recycling Centres.
North Lincolnshire Council are working hard to maintain current site operating hours and waste logistics operations to ensure the sites continue to have enough capacity to receive waste.
This may be compromised if the demand for this service continues at the current rate.
Residents are urged to use the sites only in exceptional circumstances, for example where they have excess general household waste to dispose of.
The council are also asking that residents who must visit the sites observe social distancing rules and remember that Government guidelines are that everyone stay at home unless their journey is essential.
