Free Community Household Waste Collection return to Erewash this month following their previous success with residents.

The first collection will be on Saturday 25 June, with collections scheduled across the borough up until Saturday 25 March 2023. All collections take place between 8am and 11:30am with council staff on hand to assist residents.

Residents can dispose of small bulky waste items free of charge at locations across the borough, with the first two collection points at Recreation Ground Car Park, Doncaster Avenue, Sandiacre and West Park Recycling Centre, Wilsthorpe Road, Long Eaton.

Over the course of the service there will be collections in Kirk Hallam, West Hallam, Long Eaton, Little Eaton, Sawley, Borrowash, Breadsall, Ilkeston, Stanley Village, Sandiacre, Risley, and Draycott.

The collections are for small bulky household waste items, including small items of furniture, carpets, textiles and bagged soil. Small household electrical waste is also accepted such as kettles, irons and toasters.

Councillor Garry Hickton, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Refuse and Recycling, says:

“Erewash Borough Council is delighted to offer this brilliant service once again. It has been popular with residents in previous years thanks to the variety of collection point locations and the convenient Saturday morning time slot. We hope that the service proves just as helpful over the rest of this year and the beginning of 2023.”
