ELDC green waste consulation gets 1,120 reponses

There were 1,120 responses to the consultation on green waste collections run by East Lindsey District Council.

The responses, received through the council’s website and on hard copy forms, will be ‘analysed’ by ELDC.

Questions included how much people might be willing to have their green wheelie bins emptied.

It has led to fears that the council might introduce charges in the future.

An ELDC spokesperson said: “The green waste collection services currently costs around £800,000 per year to provide. East Lindsey District Council is responsible for the collection of waste only and Lincolnshire County Council is responsible for the disposal.

“Councillors will discuss the feedback and how the green waste service will be delivered in the future in July.”
