I’ve had news from Street Services about what will be collected in the next week. Collections on Friday were cancelled because of the poor weather, but services will operate next week. However, no green waste will be collected, so the next green waste collection will be after Christmas, when natural trees will also be collected.

However, the collection of black sacks and recyclables (plastics this week) will go on as normal, though some streets within the Borough – particularly cul de sacs, roads on slopes and quiet lanes – may be inaccessible to the collection teams because of road and footpath conditions.
