The dates for the last brown bin collections in the borough for the winter have been confirmed.
Brown bins in the north of the borough – Ilkeston and the surrounding areas – have their last collection week commencing 28 November 2022. Garden waste collections will restart the week of 20 February 2023.
Brown bins in the south of the borough – Long Eaton and the surrounding areas – will have their last collection the week commencing 5 December 2022. Garden waste collections will restart the week of 27 February 2023.
When garden waste collections end for the season, Erewash residents can use their brown bin, alongside their blue bin and green bags, for any extra dry mixed recycling until the garden waste rounds resume next year.
Councillor Garry Hickton, Lead Member for Environment at Erewash Borough Council, says:
“There’s still a few weeks left to get those final gardening tasks done before the last brown bin collections of the year. Once the gardening season is over, residents can use the brown bin for extra recycling during the winter months.”
