Wheelie Bin Service and Collections

East Lindsey District Council operates a 3 wheelie bin collection, with separate bins for recyclable, non recyclable, and green waste. Bins are emptied weekly, with collections alternating between the recyclable and non recyclable waste. This has proved highly successful, and thanks to residents co-operation East Lindsey now has one of the best household recycling rates in the country.
