Alterations planned to dustbin and recycling box collections across North Lincolnshire
Changes are to be made to the collection of dustbins and recycling boxes across North Lincolnshire - potentially affecting hundreds of households.
The unitary council says it is gearing up for "improvements" from Monday, November 5.
It has not revealed how many households across the district will be affected.
However, the authority has said: "The changes won’t be the same for everyone, and for some there will be no change."

From October 3, householders will receive an information pack explaining how their collections could be affected.
The council says that recycling collections have needed to be been "rolled out" to more properties in recent years.
It also points to significant new housing developments that have created "unbalanced collections rounds."
Bosses believe now is the time to re-balance the workload "to maintain an efficient service in terms of fuel consumption and environmental impact."
Your collection day may change
Your collection week may change – the waste and recycling will be collected on opposite weeks to the current schedules
Your collection time could change – the wheeled bins will still be collected from 7am and boxes from 8.30am. This means the crew may get to a street earlier or later than they previously did.
Your box collection day could change – some properties currently have their boxes collected on a different day. With the changes you will get your boxes collected on the same day as your general waste bin.
Councillor Nigel Sherwood (Brigg and Wolds), Cabinet Member for Highways and Neighbourhoods at North Lincolnshire Council, said: “Reviewing our collection rounds will improve efficiency and ensure an excellent service is maintained.
"This review may mean a change to the day or week your containers are collected.
“All will be explained in your information pack and you will receive a new calendar sticker letting you know when your collection days are.
"It will also include a leaflet detailing what you can and cannot put in your containers, and a guide to the network of household recycling centres."
