Councillor Garry Hickton, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Refuse and Recycling, said: “Erewash Borough Council is delighted to offer this brilliant service once again. It has been popular with residents in previous years thanks to the variety of collection point locations and the convenient Saturday morning time slot. We hope that the service proves just as helpful over the rest of this year and the beginning of 2023.”
