Delayed Rubbish Collections due to last week’s snow.

If w/c 5 March is your scheduled Green Week…
As you missed a collection due to snow, please put your black bin/bags out alongside your food waste, paper, plastic and textile recycling bags. Do not put your garden waste bin/sacks out.

Your can/tins and glass will be collected on your next scheduled Blue Week (w/c 12 March).

We have made the decision to suspend garden waste collections w/c 5 March in order to collect black bins/bags that were missed due to the snow. Your garden waste bin/sacks will be collected as normal on your next Green Week (w/c 19 March).

In the unlikely event that we can’t get to you on your scheduled collection day next week, please leave your bags and containers out and we’ll come back and collect as soon as it is safe to do so.
