SPRING BANK HOLIDAY BIN COLLECTIONS IN BRIGG & GARDEN WASTE UPDATE
With a bank holiday approaching for Brigg households , are you sure which bin to put out for collection next week and on what day the crews will be calling at your property?
North Lincolnshire Council will be emptying burgundy-coloured wheelie bins, containing cardboard and plastic for recycling, on Tuesday, May 26 in the town.
The council has outlined details of Brigg bin and box collections between now and the end of June, but there's no mention of brown (garden waste) bin emptying being resumed.
Many brown bins across Brigg have been full to overflowing for weeks, and householders have been told not to burn garden waste on bonfires.
Some Brigg households have now signed up to exchange their brown bins for FREE garden composters.
Figures for individual town and villages have not been released but about 200 households across North Lincolnshire Council's area have already shown interest in this scheme.
There's still time to join.

Composters not only break down garden waste, they also take shredded paper and torn cardboard, fallen leaves, raw fruit & veg, and even used tea bags.
