Remember your August Bank Holiday bin dates

Date Published: 26 August 2022

With the late August Bank Holiday weekend coming up soon, North Kesteven District Council is reminding residents to check their bin collection dates.

If your bins would usually be collected on Monday 29 August, please put them out for collection on Saturday 27 August instead and by the earlier time of 7.00am. All other collection days remain unchanged. You can check your collection day anytime by visiting

If ever unsure whether an item can go in your bins, you can check the Council’s Right Thing Right Bin leaflet and A-Z here

Some summer items can sometimes cause confusion when it comes to their disposal at home. Soft plastics such as food wrappers, perhaps from picnics or packed lunches, and carrier bags can be taken back to shop collection points. If not possible, they should go in your black bin only to be made into electricity.

Any takeaway food packaging should go in your black bin only, and ashes from any barbecues must be completely cold before being disposed of in your black bin only.
