Severe Weather

Waste Collections 

Please help to minimise potential disruption to waste collections in severe weather by: 

  • Where possible do not put bins and bags out until the morning of collection, although they must be available by 7:00am
  • Where possible leave bins and bags in a sheltered position, although they must still be visible from the road and on the property boundary ( for private roads & tracks – where these join the public highway) 
  • Avoid overfilling bins and tie the tops of rubbish bags to reduce the risk of litter
  • Recover bins as soon as possible after they have been emptied to reduce the risk of them being blown around

Thank you for your assistance. Please be aware that collections may be run later than normal because of difficult conditions.
