Changes to bin and box collections over Christmas

Bins, Waste and Recycling
14:01, Monday, 17th December 2018

Over the festive period, waste and recycling collections will change due to the bank holidays. Check your collection calendar carefully to make sure you don’t miss your bin day.

If your usual bin day is Tuesday, your collections due on Christmas Day (25 December) and New Year’s Day will be collected one day earlier, on Monday 24 December (Christmas Eve) and Monday 31 December (New Year’s Eve).

If your usual bin day is Wednesday, your collection due on Boxing Day (26 December) will be collected one day later on Thursday 27 December.

Thursday and Friday collections on Christmas week will be collected one day later on Friday 28 December and Saturday 29 December respectively.

Collections on Wednesday 2, Thursday 3 and Friday 4 January will take place as normal.

For those residents who are waiting an extra day because their general waste collections have been put back a day, they can leave an extra black bag of rubbish next to their bin when they put it out for collection on 27, 28 or 29 December.

To help us keep on top of your waste and recycling collections over Christmas, brown garden waste bins will not be collected between Monday 17 December to Friday 11 January.

You can check your collection dates online now.

North Lincolnshire Council’s cabinet member responsible for waste, Cllr Neil Poole, said:

“Having taken feedback from our customer usage, and working with our staff and the unions, we’ve improved our Christmas waste and recycling collections this year and we’re keeping as close as possible to our usual collection schedule to avoid confusion and minimise disruption for residents.

“For those residents who are waiting a day longer for their collection and may have extra waste that won’t fit in the bin after Christmas, we’ll be collecting an extra bag with their collections scheduled for 27, 28 and 29 December.”

You can also take extra waste and recycling to any of our Household Recycling Centres. The centres will be open as normal each day, apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Our recycling centres in Winterton, Goxhill and Belton will open an extra day on Thursday 27 December, from 10am to 4pm.
