For the next two weeks, the council will concentrate on collecting bulky items, excess waste and rubbish from people’s general waste and recycling bins.

To do this, the council has suspended brown bin collections until Tuesday January 17.

Councillor Neil Poole, cabinet member for environment at North Lincolnshire Council, said: “Residents are telling us they want a better service. We have listened and are now responding. This blitz on rubbish will mean our refuse collectors will be out in force in the next couple of weeks emptying people’s general waste bins, recycling bins and taking away any excess waste and bulky items that may have accumulated over the festive period.
