Erewash Borough Council will restart its garden waste collections this month in Ilkeston and the north of the borough and the beginning of March in Long Eaton and the south of the borough.
Garden waste collections will restart week beginning Monday 24 February in the Ilkeston areas – meaning anyone using the brown bin for recycling over winter must only use blue bins, brown bins with a blue lid and/or green bags for recyclable waste after the collections during week beginning Monday 10 February.
In the Long Eaton areas garden waste collections will restart week beginning Monday 2 March, meaning recyclable waste should only be put out for collection in blue bins, brown bins with a blue lid and/or green bags following the collections during week commencing Monday 17 February.
Councillor Garry Hickton, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Environment, says:
“It’s the autumn tasks we’re all doing now as we tidy our gardens for the winter – but the good news is there is still plenty of time to carry out those final tasks as our free garden waste collections continue into December.”
