Bin collections in Lincoln will run as scheduled over the Christmas period, apart from on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

Collections due on Wednesday, December 25 will instead be picked up on Saturday, December 21, and those due on Boxing Day have been rearranged to take place on Saturday, December 28.

Collections will run as usual on all other days, including New Years Eve and New Years Day.

Shane Harrison, the council’s Cleansing Services Officer, said: “We have worked hard this year to ensure as many bin collections as possible go ahead as normal as we know it is the time of year when bins tend to get full quite quickly.

“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. Black rubbish bags will not be taken as part of recycling.”

After the festive period there will also be the opportunity to leave your Christmas tree out for collection too.

Real tree kerbside collections will run during the weeks commencing January 6 and January 13.

People can either chop their tree up and put it in their green bin, or leave it at the kerbside next to their black bin on their regular black bin collection day.

Trees must be left out by 7am on the collection day but may be picked up separately to the bin collection.
