Council’s plea to take extra care over recycling

South Kesteven District Council is asking householders to take extra time to recycle only the correct items during the summer holidays.

South Kesteven residents help the council do a good job in recycling nearly half of all waste in silver bins and clear bags.

Ensuring recycling is kept free of items that should be in black bins, pink bags or be taken to the local Household Waste and Recycling Centre is key to helping create a more sustainable environment for everyone in the district.

Therefore as the summer holidays approach residents should remind themselves of what they can recycle by visiting

Bins and bags need to be placed at the edge of properties or collection points out by 7.30am on the day of collection but at the earliest the night before, particularly if it is bagged waste.

Equally, residents may become accustomed to a common time waste crews arrive to make collections but road closures or diversions can mean they can be earlier than expected so it is safer to meet the 7.30am deadline.
