Separate paper and card collection for homes in Stamford, Bourne and the Deepings by 2024
Lincolnshire's separate paper and card collection is set to be rolled out to South Kesteven, after a recent trial was a huge success.
Over the past 12 months, more than 7,200 households in three districts – North Kesteven, Boston and South Holland - have been putting their clean, dry paper and card into a separate purple recycling bin/bag.
Executive councillor for waste and recycling at Lincolnshire County Council Eddy Poll (Con) said: "Residents have been simply incredible, and have really embraced this new initiative. In the trial, we collected almost 420 tonnes of clean, dry paper and card, all which has gone to local and UK based paper mills to be made into paper based products.
