Weather: Disruption to Bin Rounds

Published January 13, 2017 at 11:39

Due to weather conditions waste and recycling collections for today (Friday 13th January 2017) will be delayed.

Crews have completed today’s waste and recycling collections from the majority of properties. In some instances, due to unsafe icy conditions on roads and back lanes, we have had to divert crews away to ensure safe passage, especially in areas where there are cars double parked.

We will assess the extent of missed collections today and on Monday, with additional collection crews being deployed on Tuesday to mop-up missed collections. We apologise for inconvenience to householders and will look to complete missed collections on Tuesday.

Every effort has been made to complete today’s collections where access was possible and safe to do so, however conditions in some instances resulted in limited success in areas on a gradient or where vehicle manoeuvrability is limited.

The Council has contingency arrangements in place to engage additional resource during any recovery period or when conditions have improved sufficiently to enable access.

During any period of delay we will remove additional side waste presented.
