Tips open as usual

Grimsby and Immingham Community Recycling Centres, also known as CRCs or the tips, are open as usual from 8am to 6pm daily.

Both tips can be busy during bank holiday weekends with hundreds of visitors per day. Please be patient if you are visiting and avoid peak times if you can.

Only a limited number of vehicles are allowed on site due to Covid-19 restrictions and queues could be longer than usual.

Both sites are run by North East Lincolnshire Council’s waste management contractor Newlincs Development Ltd.

Cllr Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for Environment and Transport at North East Lincolnshire Council, said:

“Please be mindful of our crews when they are out emptying your bins. Follow the advice about social distancing, give them space and let them get on with their work.

“Stay safe when visiting the tip. Follow the site rules and instructions given by staff.

“Our waste and recycling crews and the workers at the tips are here to help and have the right to work in a safe environment. We will not tolerate any abuse directed at our staff.”

How to help your bin crew
