The new wheelie bins which have been rolled out across Grimsby and North East Lincolnshire have been emptied for the first time this week.

Unfortunately, collection crews are already experiencing delays.

The transition from recycling boxes to wheelie bins is part of the Council’s shake-up of the recycling process, and was largely supported when put to public consultation.

Bin deliveries started at the end of July.

Almost 10,000 homes received new bins in the first two weeks of the roll out.

Another 5,000 are being delivered this week.

According to North East Lincolnshire Council, households in parts of Waltham, Humberston, Cleethorpes, Scartho and Great Coates are among those due to receive bins this week.

Next week deliveries will also be made in parts of Laceby, Old Clee, East Marsh, Heneage and Immingham.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for Environment and Transport at North East Lincolnshire Council, said:

“I’d like to thank all the households that are embracing the new bins and putting them out for the first time. I’m also grateful to our waste crews as they adapt to the new rounds.

“More and more people in North East Lincolnshire are recycling. It saves energy and helps transform existing items into something new.

“Remember to wash and squash plastic bottles and flatten cardboard boxes when putting them in your bin.

“Bin deliveries continue at a rapid pace with about 5,000 homes receiving new bins each week.”

Residents can check their bin delivery date via the council website.

Some new build homes, communal properties and houses with no front garden will not appear on the calendar.

Affected households will be contacted by the Council directly.
