Bin help for elderly folk

PEOPLE who struggle to take out their bins can register for a special collection service.

About 3,000 residents are already registered to use Erewash Borough Council’s assisted collection service for residents over 70 and those with long term disabilities or health issues.

Cllr Barbara Harrison said: “The assisted collection is an excellent service and we want to ensure that everyone in Erewash is aware of its existence and that those who need our help get themselves registered as soon as possible.”

To register, call the council on 0115 907 2244.
