Get rid of your waste via Skip It! – a new campaign from NELC

NELC’s neighbourhood services team would like you to know about the new Skip It! programme for disposing of your waste items.

Skip It! is a three month pilot project that gives people the chance to dispose of unwanted household items and learn more about how the council is working hard to create a cleaner, greener North East Lincolnshire.

Skip It! has been set up with the following aims:
Reduce fly-tipping
Increase recycling
Engage and educate the wider community about the waste service and recycling

Waste such as mattresses, furniture, garden waste, recycling and white goods will be collected at designated locations in each ward between the hours of 08:30 – 15:00.

The temporary collection points will be set up for a day in each of the area’s 15 wards. This will be done for five days in August, five in September and five in October.

People visiting the collection points will find two large skips, two vans for white goods, mattresses and furniture, a vehicle for garden waste and recycling bins. They will also be able to pick up recycling boxes.

There will be an exhibition trailer where people can find out more about how the council manages waste and recycling, hear from community groups who organise litter picks and other activities in the area, and find out from ecology officers about local wildlife and habitats.
