Bins, waste and recycling

North East Lincolnshire Council is reminding people that it is removing some of its remaining ‘bring to’ recycling banks in October. 

As announced following a review in August 2021, the following sites will be removed during the first week of October:

  • Asda, Ellis Way, Grimsby
  • Doughty Road Depot, Grimsby
  • Duchess Street Car Park, Grimsby
  • Kennedy Way, Immingham
  • Kirkgate, Waltham
  • St Peter’s Avenue Car Park, Cleethorpes
  • Waltham Road Car Park, Waltham
  • Weelsby Woods Car Park, Weelsby Road

Bring to recycling bins are also set to be replaced with new litter bins at Greenlands in New Waltham, Hardy’s Road and Aldrich Road entrances to Haverstoe Park, and Hope Court in Cromwell Road.

The Council has gradually reduced the number of bring to recycling banks in North East Lincolnshire since it introduced new wheelie bins for recycling in 2020. These are the last sites to be removed.

Cllr Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport at the Council, said:

“We have made big improvements to household recycling collections since 2020.

“As a result, people are not using the bring to recycling banks as much as they used to, and some sites suffer from high levels of fly-tipping.

“Most households now have much more capacity for recycling at home and are recycling more than ever before.

“The need for these bring to sites has reduced over time and in the next few years we are likely to see more initiatives from central government such as deposit return schemes that will reduce the need even more.

“The more problematic sites are a drain on resources as our staff must be taken from their regular duties to clean up the mess left by fly-tippers.

“Removing the sites will mean our staff waste less time clearing up fly-tips and help us focus our efforts on keeping the borough clean.”
