Further changes to bin collections in parts of East Lindsey due to Covid-19
January 29, 2021
Some households in the south of East Lindsey are being advised of further changes to waste collections due to more crews testing positive for COVID-19.
Household waste (black bin) collections which did not take place this week (w/c January 25) will now be taking place next week. There will be no recycling (grey bin) collections for those properties affected.
We ask all residents who had their black bin missed this week to put it out for collection by 5.30am on Monday 1st February. We cannot give an exact day that residents bin will be collected so please leave it on the kerbside until it has been emptied. Any overflow of household waste can be presented bagged at the side of the bin.
Normal collections will resume week beginning Monday 8th February in line with the collection calendar.
The areas affected include:
· New Leake
· Coningsby (Part)
· Coningsby Moorside
· Mareham Le Fen
· N Bolingbroke
· Tumby Moorside
· Tumby Woodside
· Wood Enderby
· Gypsey Bridge
· New Bolingbroke
· New York
· Scrub Hill
· Thornton Le Fen
· Antons Gowt
· East Keal
· East Kirkby
· Keal Coates
· Toynton All Saints
· West Keal
A more detailed list can be viewed on the Council's website at www.e-lindsey.gov.uk/missedbin
The majority of the recycling (grey) bins will be full by the next scheduled collection so we will take additional bags of recycling presented with the grey bin.
Once again we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Assistant Director for Operations at the Council, Victoria Burgess, said: "We would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support to our crews and we are working hard to solve
the issues we are facing around accumulation of household waste. I would ask residents to help our crews next week by not presenting bins that don't require emptying. This will
enable us to collect from properties more quickly.
"Please could you share this message with friends and family in the District as well as any elderly/vulnerable neighbours to make sure they have also picked up on this new
"Our focus in doing so is helping residents to manage their residual waste the best they can; whilst giving our team the time they need to recover from Covid-19."
