North East Lincolnshire Council is inviting community groups and other organisations to bid to host their own Skip It events with its support as part of a new trial.
Almost 28 tonnes of household waste was collected at the first two Skip It events of 2019.
The Council teamed up with Lincolnshire Housing Partnership (LHP) to host the pop-up recycling events on the East Marsh and in Immingham last month.
Following this success, the Council is launching a trial where community groups and other organisations can apply to host Skip It events in their area.
Each Skip It event can be held between the hours of 8am and 4pm or 10am and 6pm. The community group(s) can request their preferred hours and day within the Expression of Interest (EOI) form. Unfortunately there are no weekend slots available due to disposal facilities being closed.
Groups can bid to
hold their own event on the following dates as part of the trial:
• Monday 15 to Friday 19 July
• Monday 22 to Friday 26 July
• Monday 5 to Friday 9 August
• Monday 19 to Friday 23 August
• Monday 9 to Friday 13 September
• Monday 14 to Friday 18 October
