Erewash Borough Council has confirmed the dates for its last garden waste collections for the year – the collections are always temporarily withdrawn during the winter months.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 2 December. The last collections in the SOUTH – Long Eaton and surrounding areas –will be week commencing Monday 9 December.
When 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.
Councillor Garry Hickton, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Environment, says:
“It’s the autumn tasks we’re all doing now as we tidy our gardens for the winter – but the good news is there is still plenty of time to carry out those final tasks as our free garden waste collections continue into December.”
Garden waste collections will restart week beginning Monday 24 February in the Ilkeston areas – meaning anyone using the brown bin for recycling over winter must only use blue bins, brown bins with a blue lid and/or green bags for recyclable waste after the collections during week beginning Monday 10 February.
In the Long Eaton areas garden waste collections will restart week beginning Monday 2 March, meaning recyclable waste should only be put out for collection in blue bins, brown bins with a blue lid and/or green bags following the collections during week commencing Monday 17 February.
