Irthlingborough to host bulky waste amnesty event

Published Wednesday, 11 March 2020

Irthlingborough residents are being invited, following the success of last year’s waste amnesty day, to dispose of any unwanted items on Saturday, 21 March.

East Northamptonshire Council (ENC) has partnered with Irthlingborough Town Council, Longhurst Group, Northants Police, Orbit, Grand Union Housing Group and The Co-Operative Central England to encourage residents to clear out their houses and gardens of general waste, white goods and scrap metal.

Anyone wishing to dispose of items should bring them to Allen Road car park between 9:30 - 11:30am and Crow Hill Community Centre car park from 1:45 - 4:00pm on Saturday 21 March.

A team of people will be on standby ready to help if needed and there will also be community litter pick around the area.

Cllr Steven North, Leader of East Northamptonshire Council says:

“We are always trying to find ways to help residents across East Northants clear out those unwanted items and after the success of previous amnesties, we were keen to partner once again with other like-minded organisations. I urge everyone to take advantage of this amnesty day and have a spring clean.”
