Lincolnshire Waste Partnership

Paper and card recycling trial

From September 2019, over 7,500 homes in Boston, South Holland and North Kesteven will be taking part in a year long separate paper and cardboard collection trial.

By having a separate bin we will be able to collect clean and dry paper and card. This will help avoid it being contaminated by other items.

It’s then sent direct to a local paper mill and turned back into paper products. This reduces the amount of road miles and overall carbon footprint.

We’ve looked at similar schemes operating around the country, and they have worked well. It has increased the quality as well as amount sent to recycling.

We hope to see the same benefits in our area.
