Residents in East Lindsey warned about green waste service scam

Residents in East Lindsey have been warned about a possible scam regarding subscriptions to the district council's green waste service.


The message comes after ELDC was alerted to an incident in Woodhall Spa where an individual allegedly visited homes attempting to sell subscriptions to the service.

An article on the district council’s Facebook page reminds residents that they can only subscribe to the service via the council website - or by contacting the authority direct.

The council adds that anyone using any other method to take out the subscription will not have their green bins emptied.

The council’s fleet of refuse vehicles is fitted with equipment which enables crews to identify which homes have paid for the green waste service.
