If any collection is missed it will mostly likely be as a result of us diverting resources to priority services. The advice we’re giving to residents if collections are missed is as follows:
if the bins on your street are not emptied, please leave them out for up to three days (including weekends) and we’ll try to catch up. If they are still not emptied, please bring them back in and we will empty them on the next planned collection day.
We have had to suspend our kerbside small electricals and textiles recycling service as the centres that would normally accept these items are currently unable to process them.
We’re asking residents to keep these items until the service has resumed and making it very clear that they must NOT go in the general rubbish or recycling bins because of the fire risk to waste collection trucks.
We are also reminding people that gatherings like community litter picks should no longer be taking place until the government guidelines allow, and until our crews can cope with the extra waste collection.
