The Council 

Garden waste collections are to resume in the borough soon meaning that brown bins can no longer be used for dry mixed recycling.

In Ilkeston and the north of the borough garden waste collections resume the week of February 22 and, in Long Eaton and the south of the borough collections start again the week of Monday March 1.

Brown bins can be used for dry recycling – paper, glass, cardboard, tins and plastic - in Ilkeston areas for the last time the week of February 8 and in Long Eaton areas the week of February 15.

Dry mixed recycling can then only be put in blue bins, brown bins with a blue lid and green bags.

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

“Every year residents can use their brown bins for dry recycling during the winter months. We would like to remind people that this is due to come to an end shortly and they can once again start using their brown bins for garden waste.”

More information can be found on our bins and recycling pages.
