The City of Lincoln Council worked with contractors Cory Environmental so that bin collection are still done on the their usual pick-up dates over the Christmas period.
Only those in Lincoln who have bins collected on Tuesdays, will have the date moved to December 22 instead of Christmas Day, while those due on Boxing Day will get collected on December 29.
Collection will run as normal on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Shane Harrison, City of Lincoln Council Cleansing Services Officer, said: “We would ask people to have their bins out by 7am on collection days to ensure they get picked up.
“For recycling collections we ask people to put any extra recycling waste in clear bags by the side of their bin and not in black rubbish bags.”
