SKDC Guidelines on Waste Disposal and Recycling
Reproduced from SKDC 'Garbage Guide'
• Refuse bags must be put out by 7.30am
• Please tie up bags securely and place at the edge of the
property nearest to the roadside
• Please place paint, glass or sharp objects separately
in a marked box
If you are physically unable to put your bags at the edge of your
property and there is no-one else in the household able to do
so, an assisted scheme is available.
Contact 01476 406279
SKDC will not collect if ...
• refuse is loose or scattered
• your bags contain garden or trade refuse
• you haven't put your bags out on time
• you haven't placed your refuse bag or box at the edge
of your property
• bags are excessively heavy
SKDC collects about 800 tonnes of refuse per week. Approximately
50% of this can be recycled, or reused. Some simple steps to minimise
waste include ...
• buying milk from the milkman rather than in plastic bottles
• buying large 2 or 3 litre bottles of pop/juice rather
than several small bottles
• buying fresh vegetables and fruit in single bags rather
than that pre-packed in plastic trays
• switching from disposable nappies to reuseable
• buying items, when avaialble, in glass jars or bottles,
cans or tins, foil wrapper etc rather than plastic containers
as they can then be recycled rather than thrown away
• refusing to take plastic carrier bags, buy a 'Bag for
Life' / reuseable bag from supermarkets
Think before you buy !
Garden waste will only be taken if it is in an official SKDC green
sack and excludes stones and soil.
Alternatively, garden waste can be disposed of at your local Civic
Amenity Sites or Saturday mobile freighters.
Or why not start home composting?
Bags can be brought from local Council offices in Grantham, Stamford
and Market Deeping.
