Waste Collection Update

Published: 09 February 2021

Further to yesterday’s updates on the bad weather & road conditions and their impact on our collection services, please see below the update posted on our website this morning. We will be working closely with Urbaser throughout the week to manage any effective programme of catch up collections as road conditions hopefully improve over the coming days:

Following further snowy & icy conditions overnight, today’s collection services have been suspended. Our trucks weigh up to 32 tonnes and before sending them out, we have to consider the risk of injury to the public and staff, damage to property and the possibility of becoming stuck, causing further disruption.

Please leave your bins out readily available for when the crews return to catch up when it is safe to do so. Crews will be working over the weekend if necessary to catch up with collections.

Staff have been redeployed to assist KCC Highways with gritting activities to help keep access to essential services open, as well as working over the weekend to catch up with this week’s collections.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause
