The decision has been taken this morning to suspend bin collections owing to safety concerns in the icy road conditions. The message to residents is that they should leave their bins out and we will catch up as soon as possible this week.

Subject to the weather improving as forecast the crews will be going out tomorrow, starting with the rubbish and recycling bin collections scheduled for today and will then, hopefully, move onto Tuesday’s collections, so we will be asking people to leave bins out and we will collect them as soon as possible. There may be extra collections on Saturday if necessary.

The grounds maintenance and countryside teams are out salting the car parks and priority areas as identified in the council snow plan.
