There's good news for households in the Brigg area which have bulky items awaiting collection through a free scheme operated by North Lincolnshire Council.
Having been suspended early in the Coronavirus emergency period, this popular service has now been reintroduced - after many weeks.
Households across North Lincolnshire qualify for one FREE collection each calendar year, when 'up to three' bulky items will be collected by the local authority and taken away for safe disposal.
It says the quickest way to book a collection is to use the online form created for this purpose. Here's a link to more information about this service, including access to the form required....
Items the council will take away include beds, chairs, cookers, freezers and washing machines.
If you've already used up your free collection entitlement for this calendar year (NOT financial/council tax year) the council will still visit and remove bulky items but will levy a fee.
The council told Brigg Blog several times over recent weeks that the resumption of the service would be notified through its website. We've been unable to find that post/entry, but now know the service HAS resumed because, a few days ago, we managed to book a collection online, using the form provided.
So today we are spreading the word. Please tell friends and neighbours who have items stocked up over recent weeks requiring safe disposal.
