Further snow in some areas and freezing conditions over night mean we are struggling to access some parts of the borough for collections today.

Published: Friday, 15th December 2017

We have caught up with any collections missed on Monday and Tuesday due to the snow but we are now experiencing issues with icy road conditions which are affecting todays collections.

Black, Grey, Blue and Red Bins

We have not been able to access some areas of the borough today and we also experienced issues accessing some rural areas yesterday.

When the road surfaces are icy our collection vehicles can slide when turning and the safety of the public and our collection staff is paramount.

As the roads start to thaw we will attempt to access some areas again later today but if you have not received a collection by 4:30pm today please take your bins back in over the weekend and put them back out at 6:30am Monday morning.

The crews are making a note of any areas we cannot access and we will return to them as soon as possible.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
