Properties in some areas of West Lindsey have their refuse and recycling collected in sacks. This is usually because they are unsuitable for wheelie bins, or in an area that is inaccessible for our vehicles. Wherever possible properties will be issued with wheeled bins.
Waste Sack Collections in Gainsborough
Our Council Members have asked that we review the waste collection and waste enforcement options for areas of Gainsborough where properties currently have their refuse and recycling collected in sacks.
You can read more about why we are doing this, some of the current issues, and what we hope to achieve in the Prosperous Communities Committee report 11 (item 33)
Residents in all affected properties received a Waste Sack Collection leaflet asking for thoughts on how collections can be improved.
This survey is now closed. Thank you for your contributions. We will publish the results and analysis on this page shortly.
