We will always do our best to continue with waste and recycling collections during poor weather conditions. However occasionally we will have to take the difficult decision to suspend collections.
Our decisions 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 collection 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.
