Erewash residents are being reminded to make sure their refuse and recycling bins are out and ready for collection before 7am in the morning.

From Monday January 18 the council will be deploying four more vehicles – normally used for garden waste collections in the summer – for its recycling and refuse collections in the borough. This will mean quicker collections and may result in your bin being emptied earlier than normal.

Councillor Garry Hickton, Lead Member for Environment at Erewash Borough Council, said:

“During the on-going Coronavirus pandemic it is imperative that our keyworkers are kept safe. Using more vehicles will help our crews to follow all the safety guidelines while trying to ensure that we get all rounds completed.”

More information on collections can be found on our bins pages.
