General

From a nativity scene made out of tyres to a reindeer made from scrap wood, Grimsby & Immingham tip have launched their Christmas display to help raise money for local charities.

The site is transformed for every seasonal occasion including Halloween and Easter. The team, who are now seasoned pros at decorating, have included wooden camels and a whole host of other festive characters in this year’s display.

Some of their previous spectacles include a tribute to HRH Queen Elizabeth II and their excellent Grimsby Town theme during their historic FA Cup run.

Grimsby and Immingham CRCs are open daily from 8am to 6pm. Both sites are run by North East Lincolnshire Council’s waste management contractor Newlincs Development Ltd.

Grimsby CRC is in Estuary Way, Grimsby DN31 2UD. Immingham CRC is in Queens Road, Immingham DN40 1QR.

Matty Harlow who is part of the team at the tip said:

“We have changed all the decorations including putting up a big tree at the entrance and decorating the place with lights. We do it all year round to help raise as much as we can for our local charities.

“Christmas is our biggest fundraiser though, last December we raised £15,000.” He added: “We’re like a well-oiled machine now so it doesn’t even take us that long to put together, we just do it when we can.

“I love doing it myself and we’ve got no plan on stopping anything yet, it just keeps getting better and better.”

Cllr Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for Environment and Transport at the Council, added:

“The award-winning staff at Grimsby and Immingham tips do a brilliant job and always raise a smile when there’s something to celebrate.

“Anyone who has visited Grimsby and Immingham Tip will see the lengths they go to to make the site a fun place to recycle things you don’t need.

“There are also plenty of bargains on offer with their bike and bric-a-brac sales, with all the proceeds going to good causes.”
