Lincolnshire’s Household Waste Recycling Centres are set to accept recycling, garden waste and general waste on any opening day from 8 March, but the booking system will remain.
Councillor Eddy Poll, executive member for waste and recycling at Lincolnshire County Council, explains: “I’d like to thank residents for their patience. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to make sure the system can operate safely with all waste types being brought on the same day. This, together with the progress being made by the vaccination programme, means that from 8 March, residents will be able to bring their recycling, garden waste and general waste on any day we are open.
“We would however ask residents to separate their waste types and load their vehicle accordingly – so we can ensure as much is recycled as possible.”
Residents can bring, on any day:
- Scrap metal
- Electricals (such as washing machines and TVs)
- Household chemicals
- Mineral and cooking oil
- Gas cylinders
- Garden waste
- Black-bagged general waste, plastic and mattresses
- Soil and hardcore (limited to one dustbin full per vehicle per day)
- Plasterboard (limited to one dustbin full per vehicle per day)
- Bulky waste, such as carpets and sofas
Lincolnshire County Council confirmed that the booking system will remain in place where residents need to book a slot in advance. This will enable the Council to manage the number of people on-site and prevent excessive queues.
Residents can book at https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/clickandtip or by calling 01522 782070.
Vans and larger trailers will still need to have a permit to access the sites, which can be accessed via the link above.
