Waste and recycling collections update for N E Lincs

As previously reported, the collection of waste bins and recycling boxes across North East Lincolnshire over the festive period ran behind schedule

The freezing temperatures made it difficult for crews to make collections due to slippery roads and footways.

Since then, operatives have been working to clear the backlog and all domestic waste has now been collected.

However, the collection of dry recyclables is still running behind schedule in some areas of the borough. Residents are asked to present their recycling boxes on their normal collection day and the backlog will be cleared by Friday (January 9).

Additional vehicles have been deployed to clear the backlog with 24 crews currently operating instead of the normal 11.

The council apologises for any inconvenience the delay in collections may have caused.
