Grantham Clean and Green: Garden waste should only go in green bins

Grass and garden waste items should only go into green bins and not in black bins.

That’s the message from South Kesteven District Council, as part of the Grantham Clean and Green campaign, a partnership between the Journal and local authority.

Energy from waste sites can be adversely affected by quantities of green waste entering their black bin and pink bag waste processes.

That’s why residents should visit www.southkesteven.gov.uk/recyclinglist to check what can go in each bin or bag at home.

Garden waste including grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, weeds, twigs, branches, flowers, plants, leaves and bark should only be placed in a green bin at home or taken to the household waste and recycling centre (HWRC) in Grantham, off Alexandra Road.

If residents do not have a green bin, they can sign up to the garden waste service at www.southkesteven.gov.uk/greenbin

Executive member for environment Councillor Nick Craft said: “At this time of year we understand those with gardens are regularly maintaining them but remember grass and other garden waste should not be left in your black bin or pink bag.

“Sign up to our garden waste service for a fortnightly green bin collection or deposit the waste at a HWRC, open Friday to Monday 9am to 4pm on Alexandra Road in Grantham and South Fen Road in Bourne.”
