Garden waste and cardboard collections

Garden waste and cardboard collections

Garden waste and cardboard collections will continue monthly until further notice.

Message from NWLDC - 'We understand these collections are important to you - we continue to review when it is safe to resume normal fortnightly collections.

Your garden waste and cardboard is normally collected in the same vehicle but kept separate. This requires a four man crew during the summer months, due to a large increase in garden waste. This makes it difficult for staff to socially distance and work safely - keeping them and their families safe from Covid-19 will always be our main priority. More »

We are therefore currently collecting your garden waste and cardboard in two separate vehicles, with a maximum three man crew. This is why your garden waste and cardboard are currently collected separately and monthly.

Thank you for your continued patience and recycling efforts. Take a look at our tips and advice on reusing and disposing of excess garden waste and cardboard.' » Less

Weather Warnings - Be prepared

Weather Warnings - Be prepared

This is just a message for those often affected by flood to be prepared and be prepared and alert to this possibility...stay safe...

Although the weather is extremely changeable at the moment, there are warnings in the coming days of thunderstorms and heavy rain that could cause localised flooding.

According to the Met Office:
While some areas stay dry, others could see severe thunderstorms, with possible sudden flooding, or damage from lightning or hail. More »

  • There is a small chance that fast flowing or deep floodwater could suddenly occur, bringing a danger to life and flooding of homes and businesses
  • There is a greater chance that spray, sudden flooding, standing water and/or hail will result in rapidly changing, dangerous driving conditions. Where flooding occurs, road closures are possible along with delays and cancellations to bus and rail services.
  • There is a chance that power and other essential services, such as gas, water or mobile phone service could be lost
  • There is a chance of damage to buildings/structures from lightning strikes, hail, or strong winds.

NWLDC webpage contains useful information for residents about preparing for flooding, where to purchase flood defence resources such as sandbags from, and links to specialist flooding websites such as the Environment Agency.

As ever, NWLDC will have some sandbags available for collection only at NWLDC Coalville recycling depot, should flooding arrive. However, residents are encouraged to prepare themselves; Details of how to contact us should these sandbags be needed are available on the webpage above. » Less
