Erewash Borough Council will restart its garden waste collections at the end of January in the north of the borough and the beginning of February in the south.
Residents living in the Ilkeston and north area of Erewash are reminded that their collection during the week (15-19 January) is the last refuse collection when recyclable waste can be put out in brown bins.
After this week, brown bins must only be used for garden waste ahead of the restart of brown bin collections week commencing Monday 29 January.
For residents in Long Eaton and the south of the borough, week commencing 22 January is the last time brown bins can be used for recyclable waste ahead of the restart of garden waste collections on Monday 5 February.
Householders who have been using their brown bins over the winter must revert to putting out kerbside recycling in green bags, which are free from either Ilkeston or Long Eaton town hall receptions, or they can purchase a blue bin. For more details call 0115 907 2244.

“The busy gardening season is on its way and I know gardeners will be ready for our brown bins collections to restart. There is no additional charge for garden waste collections in Erewash and the service makes gardening easier for everyone.”
