Erewash Borough Council has confirmed the dates for its last garden waste collections, which always come to end during the winter months.
Residents in the south of the borough – Long Eaton and surrounding areas – will have their last brown bin collections week commencing Monday 30 November. In the north – Ilkeston and surrounding areas – it will be week commencing Monday 7 December.
Once the garden waste collections end for the season, Erewash residents can once again use their brown bin for their recyclable waste until the garden waste rounds resume next year.
After week commencing 8 February 2016 in the south of the borough and 15 February in the north, brown bins must be used for garden waste only. After these dates residents should only present recycling for collection in a blue bin and/or green bags.
Councillor Garry Hickton, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Environment, says:
“It has been another good year for gardeners and we know residents have been making full use of our garden waste collections – and there’s still time left to do all those final tasks!”
