New bin deliveries near their final stage

More than 50,000 households are now using new recycling bins in North East Lincolnshire.

At the end of last week, a total of 52,790 homes had received a pair of bins as part of North East Lincolnshire Council’s massive overhaul of its kerbside recycling collections.

From October 19, recycling bins are arriving at households in parts of Humberston, Ashby cum Fenby, Barnoldby le Beck, Waltham, Brigsley, New Waltham, Cleethorpes, Heneage, Little Coates, Nunsthorpe, and The Willows.

From October 26, bins will be delivered in parts of Laceby, Bradley, Aylesby, Cleethorpes, East Marsh, West Marsh, Healing, Immingham, Habrough, and Stallingborough.

Visit the recycling bins page at to check your delivery date. Some new-build homes, communal properties and houses with no front garden will not appear on the calendar.

Cllr Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for Environment and Transport at North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “We’re now approaching the final stage of the bin deliveries and we’re on schedule to finish early in November.

“All the bins are clearly marked, people can help by making sure they put the right materials in the right bin.

“I’d like to thank everyone who is using the new bins to recycle as much as they can.”

All bins come with an instructional leaflet. Copies of the leaflet are also on the recycling bins page of the council website at

Households start using their new bins as soon as they arrive and they replace the three recycling boxes.

North East Lincolnshire Council is working with Stallingborough-based recycling company Grimsby Granulation Ltd to collect and recycle the unwanted boxes. The boxes are ground into pellets ready to be used to make new products.

A team from Grimsby Granulation Ltd is following the council’s waste crews and taking the boxes that are left out on the first collection days with the new bins.

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

Collection days will remain the same for most homes until early 2021. There are no changes to collections for household waste, garden waste or collections from communal bins.
