No food in recycling!

PEOPLE in Brigg will no longer be able to put food waste in their brown recycling bins from Monday, May 30.

Fruit and vegetables, peelings, fruit cores, banana skins, tea bags and coffee grounds now need to be composted at home or put in the general waste bin.

North Lincolnshire Council is no longer able to accept this type of waste in the brown bin due to recent changes to Government guidance on the treatment of food waste from domestic kitchens. The guidance does not affect home composting.

For more information about the change, or for help and advice with bins, view the recycling and waste pages on the council’s website, or call the council’s customer helpline on 01724 297000.

North Lincolnshire Council has teamed up with Straight Plc to offer home compost bins at affordable prices to help people cut down on the amount of waste that goes into their general waste bin.

People can buy home compost bins for as little as £15 for a 220-litre model and £18 for the larger 330-litre version.

For more information about home composting, visit the composting pages of the council’s website, call 0844 571 4444, or visit the get composting website to order a home compost bin.
