Councils in Lincolnshire are reminding residents to keep the three G’s (Glitter, Grease and Grub) out of their recycling bins this Christmas.
To keep recycling clean and dry and not contaminated, the Lincolnshire Waste Partnership is launching a social media campaign highlighting the key things to leave out this Christmas.
John Coates from the Lincolnshire Waste Partnership, said: “We’re trying to make things simple in the run up to Christmas, so we’re asking residents to remember to leave out the three G’s! Glitter, Grease and Grub, as none of these can be recycled in your home recycling bins/bags.”
Glitter covered cards and wrapping paper.
Why? Glitter is hard to process in recycling process, where it can clog up equipment, and stop it working. It also works its way into recycled paper which is then rejected by the end user.
Grease covered pizza boxes, cardboard and takeaway pots.
Why? Once grease gets onto paper and card, they cannot be recycled because the paper fibres will not be able to be separated from the oils during the pulping process.
Grub (aka Food).
Why? Food just can’t be recycled in your kerbside recycling bin/bag. If you are in the food waste trial running in South Kesteven, put in your food caddy, anywhere else in the county, please put in your household waste bin/bags.
John adds: “The other issue people always ask is what to do with wrapping paper. If it is glitter-free paper, we’d ask you to do the ‘scrunch test’. Crumple the paper in your hand. If it stays crunched – it is recyclable, and if not – it isn’t.
“If there is anything you aren’t sure about, please put it in your waste bin. Last year, 96% of Lincolnshire’s waste was recycled, reused, composted or converted into electricity – powering over 29,000 homes.”

The Museum of Lincolnshire Life is looking for people to contribute to an exhibition exploring how VE Day and the aftermath of World War II shaped life in Lincolnshire.
‘Memories of VE Day and Beyond: How WWII Shaped Lincolnshire’ will open at the museum in May 2020, commemorating the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
The project team is keen to feature people’s memories and stories of what life in Lincolnshire was like in the period immediately following the war.
Ron Frayne, collections manager, said: “We’re primarily looking for experiences from 1945-1954.
“These may relate to VE Day itself, or perhaps other major events, such as the birth of the NHS and development of the welfare state in Lincolnshire.
“Perhaps you could tell us about local housing and communities, changes to industry and the workplace, family life, multiculturalism, or how people spent their leisure time.
“So if you have stories or memories from this period you’d like to share, please do get in touch.”
If you think you can help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com . Alternatively, write to: Museum of Lincolnshire Life, Burton Road, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, LN1 3LY.
Contributions should be sent before the end of January 2020. Please note some contributions might not be included within the final exhibition.
Controversal broadcaster Ian ‘Pugsey’ Parker, has been sacked by Grantham-based radio station – again.
He received a letter from the station manger saying:
“Following a number of complaints in recent weeks, the management have reluctantly decided that it is not in the long term interests of the station for you to carry on in a volunteer role.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the shows that you have contributed, however, given the latest verbal attack on another presenter, we can not allow that situation to occur again.
“To be very clear, the management of Gravity FM will not tolerate verbal abuse of other volunteers, especially when made based on a persons (wrongly) perceived sexuality, or any other characteristic.
“Please note that given the nature of the complaints against you, that with immediate effect, you are no longer permitted on the premises.”
Mr Parker, who was sacked by the station about 10 years ago, following a confrontation with rock singer Vince Eager, said: “I speak my mind but I’m sometimes misunderstood.”
Until recently, he had been with the Newark community radio station, but returned to Gravity last year.
With Christmas now almost upon us, police are reminding people to ensure their personal and home security remains a priority as part of the #SaferChristmas campaign.
There are a few simple steps you can take to reduce the possibility of becoming the victim of crime over the Christmas period.
When you are out shopping:
- Be aware of what is going on around you and ensure your purse or wallet, telephone and anything of value are out of sight. If you have a handbag make sure it is secure and don’t leave it undone or unattended, especially when in crowded shops or supermarkets.
- Only carry the cards and cash that you need and take care when entering your PIN at ATM machines and shopping outlets – make sure no one is looking over your shoulder.
- Consider where you park your car, especially if it will be dark when you return. If you can, park your vehicle in a secure car park – look for the ParkMark signs – visit www.parkmark.co.uk for accredited car parks.
- If you have to return to your car to drop off bags before continuing with your shopping, just take a moment to make sure you are not being watched, make sure the shopping is out of view in the boot, the car is locked and it is a good idea to keep the receipts with you – don’t leave them in the shopping bags.
- When driving in built-up areas if you have bags on the car seats it is a good idea to lock the doors.
- However tempting it is don’t leave presents under your Christmas tree if they are visible to passers-by.
- Don’t keep large amounts of cash at home.
- Ensure you lock doors, windows and, if you have one, set your intruder alarm.
- Make your home look as occupied as possible – consider your home security.
- If your car has “keyless entry” consider purchasing a faraday type bag/signal blocking pouch for your car keys to prevent offenders using relay attack devises.
- Consider your cyber security – we tend to purchase many more items over the internet at Christmas time – always think twice before you “click” for more information visit www.actionfraud.police.uk
- Many of us will have new expensive items after Christmas. Don’t advertise what you have by putting packaging outside – dispose of it carefully. Break down any packaging/boxes fold them and place in your wheelie bin.
