All the latest news about the impact of severe weather

We will add updates to this page about any services affected by the severe weather conditions, as and when we have any details. Please keep checking back for the latest information.

Waste and recycling collections

9/3/2018 9.20am

Crews are out today and are working to schedule. They will collect black bins and green sacks as normal, and will aim to pick up the waste they were unable to collect last week. Recycling collections are also back up and running, though those missed last week will be collected on the next scheduled date and collections from flats have been suspended until crews have been able to catch up.

Garden waste

Routine garden waste collections have been suspended for rest of this week to enable crews to catch up with black bin and green sack collections but if you are on a green sack round and have a pre-booked garden waste collection scheduled for today, we will collect this.

If you are due a brown bin collection, please leave it out on your next scheduled garden waste collection day.

Co-mingled recycling

Vehicles have been deployed from other duties to ensure recycling is collected as quickly as possible. This may mean that some crews will put all of the recycling together in one lorry. This recycling will be sorted and disposed of properly once the crews finish their rounds.
