Garden Waste Collection Scheme
Signups for Season 3 are now CLOSED. Season 4 signups will be open from February 2019.
If you do not have a brown bin and want to dispose of garden waste whilst our service is closed, you can either take your garden waste to the Household Waste Recycling Centre at Bittern Way, Wyberton for free or you can compost your garden waste in your own property. For more information on how to do this you can visit: http://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/recycle-for-lincolnshire/gardenwaste/home-composting.
If you signed up by direct debit last year, don't worry we will be collecting payment for Season 4 from February 2019 and we expect your sticker to be with you within ten working days in time for the new season.
More information including exact dates of when you can join the Season 4 scheme, will be available to you in the New Year.
What you can put in your brown bin:
- Grass cuttings
- Hedge/tree cuttings
Animal/food waste and vegetable peelings cannot be placed in the brown bin.
- Soil MUST NOT be placed in the brown bin as this cannot be composted and will make the bin too heavy to be emptied
- Garden waste MUST NOT be bagged, please place loosely in your brown bin
- Extra garden waste cannot be placed next to the brown bin, it must all be contained in brown bins.
TOP TIP - To try to prevent grass cuttings from getting stuck at the bottom of the bin you can place a small amount of newspaper in the bottom of your bin as a liner.
Last year's garden waste collections generated 5,000 tonnes of waste sent for recycling into compost.
