Household waste centres to accept more waste types

Household Waste Recycling Centres across Lincolnshire will soon be able to accept more types of waste, including cardboard, glass, and bagged waste.

From Monday 25th May the types of waste accepted will be expanded from the current garden waste and wood, with residents able to bring cardboard and glass for recycling.

The following week, from 1st June, the centres will also be accepting electricals, scrap metal, and black-bagged residual waste.

Since reopening the service has proved popular with over 2,300 cars attending the first day of opening since the lockdown started, and the website crashing due to demand when the first slots were made available.

Residents must still book a timeslot on the Council’s website, or by calling 01522 782070. Phone lines are open Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm – excluding bank holidays.

Councillor Eddy Poll, executive councillor for waste and recycling at Lincolnshire County Council said: “Residents had been in touch asking to bring extra items to the sites, so we’ve worked hard over the past week to make this possible.

“To use the sites, you must book a timeslot.  Although there are a large number available, we will be releasing more slots on Tuesday 26 May.”
