A bulky waste amnesty is taking place in Irthlingborough following the huge success of a similar event last year.

People in Irthlingborough are invited to dispose of any unwanted items at the event on Saturday, March 21.

East Northamptonshire Council (ENC) has partnered with Irthlingborough Town Council, Longhurst Group, Northants Police, Orbit, Grand Union Housing Group and The Co-Operative Central England to encourage residents to clear out their houses and gardens of general waste, white goods and scrap metal.

Anyone wishing to dispose of items can take them to the Allen Road car park between 9.30am and 11.30am and the Crow Hill Community Centre car park from 1.45pm and 4pm on March 21.

A team of people will be on standby ready to help if needed and there will also be a community litter pick around the area.

Cllr Steven North, leader of East Northamptonshire Council, said: “We are always trying to find ways to help residents across East Northants clear out those unwanted items and after the success of previous amnesties, we were keen to partner once again with other like-minded organisations.

"I urge everyone to take advantage of this amnesty day and have a spring clean.”
