For the safety of Council staff and other road users, bin collections have been suspended on Monday 25 January and these bins will be collected tomorrow. The Council will work to catch up throughout the week, so please do place your bin out on your normal day- as out of the way of pedestrians as possible- and it will be collected either as normal or the day after.
Our gritting crews have been working really hard throughout winter and over this weekend, trying to keep our roads as safe as possible and have already been back out today to spread more salt. Please stay at home as much as possible, and if you have to go out- take care and drive very carefully.
