Christmas wheelie bin waste

EAST Lindsey District Council is encouraging people to continue recycling as much of their waste as they can as it builds up over Christmas.

The council says Christmas cards, wrapping paper and cardboard can be put into the grey recycling bin.

Glass bottles can be taken to the various recycling banks sited across the district.

They say tips on what to do with food leftovers can be found at www.lovefoodhatewaste.com.

Christmas trees can be taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centre at Louth.

ELDC asks residents to check their waste calendars for any bin collection day changes over the holiday period.
