Bin days change in North Kesteven

Every household in North Kesteven will see a change to their bin collection day from March 31.

The change comes as the number of houses in the area increased at one of the fastest rates in the county.

In the five years since refuse and recycling rounds were last reviewed, there has been a growth of around 4,000 more houses across the district’s 365 square mile area, but primarily in and around Sleaford and North Hykeham.

This means collection lorries are unable to efficiently cope with the current rounds.

North Kesteven District Council will be making two changes which will take effect from March 31: a change in collection date and a change in collection combination, with black and green-lidded bins being collected on alternate weeks.

Full details of the new collection days in the form of a collection calendar have been sent out to all residents. The new collection cards supersede the 2013/14 ones.

NKDC Councillor Richard Wright said: “The new routes will ensure we are providing the best and most efficient service we can to residents going forward.

“During the changeover to the new collection days, there may be some minor disruption to service, and we would ask residents to bear with us during this time.

“While the new routes bed-in, we will be collecting side waste to help ease any gaps in service.”
