Adverse weather hampers bin deliveries

About 20,000 households across North East Lincolnshire have now received a pair of new recycling wheelie bins despite adverse weather and wind hampering the council’s schedule.

Bin deliveries began a month ago this week.

Households in parts of Waltham, Humberston, Sidney Sussex, Wybers Wood and South ward are among those set to receive their bins this week.

Next week deliveries will continue across Heneage, Croft Baker, Immingham and West Marsh.

But, the council have said that strong winds are hampering some deliveries this week.

A specialist company is distributing the bins and has had to avoid delivering along some main roads during the windy weather.

On average, they deliver around 5,000 bins per week.

The delivery crews are also lying down the bins is some areas to stop them blowing over in the wind.

North East Lincolnshire Council is working with Stallingborough-based recycling company Grimsby Granulation Ltd to collect and recycle the unwanted recycling boxes.

Residents are allowed to keep their existing boxes for their own purposes, should they wish.

Unwanted boxes should be left at the boundary of your property alongside your new bins on the first day of collection.

They can also be returned to the Community Recycling Centres in Grimsby or Immingham.

North East Lincolnshire Council have released a video, showing what happens once your existing recycling bins are collected:

Councillor Stewart Swinburn said:

“It’s a month since the first deliveries started in Scartho and so far 20,000 homes are recycling with their new bins.

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

“I’d like to thank everyone for making the effort to recycle more, the new bins are making it much easier. And that’s what we want, to get people recycling more.”
