Councillor Jayne Dunn, Cabinet Member for Environment, Recycling and Streetscene commented: “I’m sorry for the delays to some collections which was due to the heavy snow fall last weekend. However now that the weather has improved we are working as quickly as we can, using extra crews, to catch up and get collections back on schedule. “
“We hope to have the majority of the outstanding collections completed by the end of the weekend.”
Francis Drew, Contract Manager at Veolia said: "With the improved working conditions following the recent milder temperatures, we're working to catch up with the backlog of collections as quickly as we can. To help residents we are also collecting small amounts of bagged side waste with the black bins, and small amounts of extra card with the blue bins/boxes."
"Extra waste can also be taken to any of the city's Household Waste Recycling Centres or bring sites which are open as normal."
"We apologise for any inconvenience caused and would like to thank residents for their patience whilst we complete outstanding collections."
