AMENDED BRIGG REFUSE COLLECTION OVER CHRISTMAS AND THE NEW YEAR - DON'T BE CAUGHT OUT
If you live in Brigg and usually get your bins collected on Tuesday, note that North Lincolnshire Council will be calling at your property on MONDAY next week because of Christmas.
The teams will be picking up blue and green boxes, emptying the main green bins and picking up textile bags.
HERE ARE THE FULL DETAILS SUPPLIED BY NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE COUNCIL, WITH SEARCH FACILITY. JUST KEY IN YOUR ADDRESS AFTER USING THE HANDY LINK.
North Lincolnshire Council is reminding people that bin collections will change over the Christmas period and brown bin collections will be stopped temporarily.
You will receive an extra collection of your general waste to help with the increase in rubbish over the festive period.
To enable us to carry out the extra general waste collection, brown bin collections will be stopped from 21 December. Collections will start again from Monday 6 January 2014.
Burgundy bins will continue to be collected but check your calendar for changes to the collection dates.
To find out when your bins will be collected check your collection calendar. If you don’t have a calendar
you can check your collection dates online at
Alternatively you can request a collection calendar from the Customer Helpline on 01724 297000 or email email@example.com
More than half of the rubbish created over this busy time can be recycled. Make sure you use your recycling boxes, bins and bag collections or take it to your nearest recycling bank.
Winter opening times are now in place at all of the eight Household Recycling Centres across North Lincolnshire.
The site at Cottage Beck Road in Scunthorpe is open from 8am to 4pm, seven days a week. All other sites - including the one at Broughton, serving the Brigg area - are open from 10am to 4pm, Friday to Tuesday.
All eight sites will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
