Brown bin collections
Erewash Borough Council has confirmed the dates for its last garden waste collections, which are temporarily withdrawn during the winter months.
Residents in the NORTH of the borough – Ilkeston and surrounding areas – will have their last brown bin collections week commencing Monday 20 November. The last collections in the SOUTH – Long Eaton and surrounding areas –will be week commencing Monday 27 November.
When garden waste collections end for the season, Erewash residents can once again use their brown bin for their recyclable waste until the garden waste rounds resume next year.
Councillor Garry Hickton, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Environment, says:
“We’ve had sweltering temperatures, rainy weather and even windy conditions for gardeners to contend with this year! But we know residents have been making full use of our garden waste collections - and there’s still time left to do all those final tasks!”
Garden waste collections will restart week beginning Monday 29 January in the Ilkeston areas – meaning anyone using the brown bin for recycling over winter must revert to using only blue bins/green bags for recyclable waste after the collections during week beginning Monday 15 January. In the Long Eaton areas garden waste collections will restart week beginning Monday 5 February, meaning recyclable waste should only be put in green bags/blue bins following the collections during week commencing Monday 22 January.
