Spalding tip to allow garden and general waste collection on any day it’s open from March 8

Residents will be able to take general and garden waste on any day a Household Waste Recycling Centre is open from March 8, Lincolnshire County Council has announced.

Since the tips were reopened after lockdown one, certain categories of rubbish could only be taken on certain days.

Now the county council says the tips, including the Spalding site on West Marsh Road, will see less restrictions of when you can take rubbish.

Coun Eddy Poll, executive member for waste and recycling at Lincolnshire County Council, explains: “I’d like to thank residents for their patience. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to make sure the system can operate safely with all waste types being brought on the same day.

“This, together with the progress being made by the vaccination programme, means that from March 8, residents will be able to bring their recycling, garden waste and general waste on any day we are open.

“We would however ask residents to separate their waste types and load their vehicle accordingly – so we can ensure as much is recycled as possible.

“To manage the number of people on site and to prevent queues, the booking system will remain, so residents will still need to visit, or call 01522 782070, to book their time slot.

“Vans and larger trailers will still need to have a permit to access the sites, which can be accessed via “
