All bin collections have resumed. Double collections will take place this week for missed collections last Thursday and Friday (1 and 2 March). Green-lidded bins will be collected on the next scheduled collection - Thursday 15th March or Friday 16th March.
Our decision to delay bin collections are never taken lightly. The safety of our staff, pedestrians and other road users must be considered. Icy and snowy conditions makes driving our waste collections lorries hazardous, particularly on narrow streets. Moving the bins over snow and ice can also be dangerous. Other factors such as time of day, duration of snow fall, temperature and whether roads have been gritted can all cause a delay to waste collection service.
