We’ve some news for those who missed their bin collections on Friday, December 8 and Monday, December 11.
We’ll collect just your Black Bin on Saturday, December 16. We won’t be collecting any green bins or recyclables – they’ll be emptied on the next scheduled pick-up day.
At the moment, staff are busy clearing ice and snow – but as we expect temperatures to stay very low things may change. We are trying to minimise disruption to the waste service and we ask for your patience whilst we work through this difficult weather.
For the rest of the week, we expect bin collections to go ahead as planned.
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said:
“It has been a difficult time for the crews and all other staff involved with preparing for and dealing with the snow and ice who have all worked tirelessly to make sure the main routes remain clear for motorists.
“We can now turn some of our attention to clearing communal, shopping areas and side routes whilst making sure priority routes remain clear. I would like to thank everyone for their kind words on social media and for their patience over the past few days.”
