a brown garden waste bin
Erewash Borough Council has confirmed the dates for its last garden waste collections for 2020 – collections are always temporarily withdrawn during the winter months.

Residents in the north of the borough – Ilkeston and surrounding areas – will have their last brown bin collections week commencing Monday 30 November. The last collections in the South – Long Eaton and surrounding areas – will be week commencing Monday 7 December.

Councillor Garry Hickton, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Environment, says:

“Gardening has seen a huge rise in popularity this year, with many of us becoming a nation of green-fingered enthusiasts regularly filling our garden waste bins, but the good news is there is still plenty of time to carry out those final tasks as our free garden waste collections will continue into late November and early December.”

When garden waste collections end for the season, Erewash residents can use their brown bin for their recyclable waste until the garden waste rounds resume next year.
