Bin collections over Easter across Lincolnshire and Rutland

The Easter bunny will soon be hopping along bringing chocolate treats and no doubt some rubbish, so here’s when your bin will be collected.

With Good Friday (March 29) and Easter Monday (April 1) being bank holidays, some collections have changed.

In South Kesteven, which covers Stamford, Grantham, Bourne and the Deepings, there will be collections as usual on Good Friday.

But week commencing April 1, all collections will be a day later than normal up to and including Saturday, April 6, with no collections on Easter Monday. The purple-lidded bin for paper and card recycling will be collected during this week. Cardboard packaging from Easter eggs can go in this bin while clean foil can go in your silver recycling bin according to the South Kesteven website (foil which cannot be cleaned because it has oil or fat on must go in the black bin or pink bag).

Residents can check their collection day online at: www.southkesteven.gov.uk/bins-street-care-recycling-and-commercial-waste/find-your-bin-collection-day

Bin collections are not changing in Rutland because of the bank holidays but some people’s collection days are changing as a result of a new fleet of bin lorries. Check your bin collection day here.

In South Holland, which covers the Spalding area, collections will move back. Bins normally collected on Good Friday will be collected on Saturday and all collections week commencing April 1 will move back by a day. Find out your bin collection date here.
