From Monday 8 March, the HWRCs across the county will change – with residents being able to take recycling, garden waste and general waste on any opening day.

Officers and contractors have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure the system can operate safely with all waste types being brought on the same day. I feel that this, together with the progress being made by the vaccination programme, means that we are now in a place that from 8 March, residents will be able to bring their recycling, garden waste and general waste on any day we are open.

Residents can bring, on any day: 

  • Scrap metal
  • Cardboard
  • Paper
  • Electricals (such as washing machines and TVs)
  • Batteries
  • Household chemicals
  • Mineral and cooking oil
  • Gas cylinders
  • Clothing
  • Garden waste
  • Wood
  • Glass
  • Black-bagged general waste, plastic and mattresses
  • Soil and hardcore (limited to one dustbin full per vehicle per day)
  • Plasterboard (limited to one dustbin full per vehicle per day)
  • Bulky waste, such as carpets and sofas

In order to manage the number of people on site and to prevent queues, the Click and Tip booking system will remain in place. Therefore, residents will still need to visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/clickandtip, or call 01522 782070, to book their time slot.

We also now have the permit scheme for Vans and larger trailers to access the sites, which can be accessed via www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/clickandtip.
