Household Waste Recycling Centre (tips) across the county will open on 18 May – for garden waste and wood only.

The process for visiting the tips has changed, and residents must book a slot at Slots will be released at 10am on 11 May.

Cllr Eddy Poll, executive member for Waste and Recycling at Lincolnshire County Council, explains: “At 10am on 11 May, we will be releasing just over 39,000 slots for the next two weeks to allow county residents to access our 11 household waste recycling centres.

“Due to social distancing guidelines and requests from the public, we will be reopening in phases, so from:

  • 18 May – 31 May – only garden waste and wood
  • 1 June onwards – only garden waste, wood, scrap metal and cardboard

“This will be reviewed regularly, and as soon as we are able, we will accept other waste types.

 “There are a number of restrictions in place, including vehicle sizes and number of times you can access the sites. Residents must also bring ID and proof of address. This is to ensure we can be operate a fair and safe system.

 “We know the website will be exceptionally busy – so please be patient. New slots will be released daily.

 “I’d remind residents that if they don’t have a booking – please don’t just turn up as you won’t be allowed in.

 “We are grateful for your patience, and by working together we can safely restore this much needed service.”
