Bins, waste and recycling

Following a temporary suspension of recycling collections in North East Lincolnshire, the Council has confirmed that it will be emptying recycling bins from Friday 18 August.

If your blue or grey recycling bin is due to be emptied on Friday, please put it out as usual.

Domestic waste and garden waste bins will be emptied as normal.

Households can check their bin day online at

The Council aims to complete Friday’s rounds on time and continue a regular service from then onwards. However, if your street is missed, please put your bin out again the next working day (Monday to Friday) and it will be emptied as soon as possible.

Cllr Stewart Swinburn, Cabinet member for the environment, said:

“We apologise to those who haven’t had their recycling bins emptied since we suspended collections.

“I’m grateful to households for their patience during this short period of disruption.

“If Friday is your bin day, please put out your bins as you usually would.”

General advice:

If there’s not enough room in your recycling bin to wait for another month, the advice is to put recycling in their green bin temporarily, and it will be taken away with household waste. Any waste from the green bins is used to generate electricity at the energy from waste plant.

Household recycling can also be taken to the Community Recycling Centres (CRCs or tips) in Grimsby and Immingham.

If bins are not emptied in your street, please do not call us. Put your bins out by 7am the next day and we will empty them as soon as we can.

Please do not leave unemptied recycling bins in the street, bring them back onto your property.
