Lincoln bin collections postponed for rest of week

This story is over

No further refuse and recycling collections will be attempted this week due to the snow and ice, the City of Lincoln Council has said.

The council has advised that extra household waste can be put to the side of the wheelie bin in black bin bags on the next scheduled collection day.

Extra recycling waste must be put in white bin liners or other clear bags only as any in black bin bags will not be taken.

Garden waste is hoped to be collected during the week commencing March 5, but as green waste freezes it may not be possible to empty these bins, the council added.

Priority will be given to household and recycling waste.
