Over 2,000 cars flock to Lincolnshire recycling centres

Yesterday (Monday 18 May) Household Waste Recycling Centres across the county welcomed 2,328 cars bringing garden waste and wood.

At the eleven sites across the county, residents for the first time, in just over two months, took their garden waste and wood to the sites.

Cllr Eddy Poll, executive member for waste at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “We’d really like to thank the public. They’ve used our new booking system and we’ve been able to take the waste quickly and easily.

“There were a few teething issues with a queue this morning at Spalding, but that’s now been ironed out and things are running really smoothly. The public have been great – arriving on time and with the correct waste types and their booking references.

“Even where residents had to be turned away because they brought the wrong waste or didn’t have a booking, they did so amicably as they understood why.

“This was the first time we’ve put a booking system in place, and we’re delighted in how it is working out.”

Time slots for this week and next are still available, and more will be released on Tuesday 26 May.
