Update re Christmas Refuse Collections

I have received the following update from the Chief Officer (Waste Management):

” You will be aware that the refuse and recycling collection service is currently still in Christmas mode, and is working one day behind on collections until Sunday 7th January 2018. Weights of waste being collected are currently 20-25% higher than usual and we expect this to continue well into next week.

Due to the snow on Friday last week, and our crews recovering this work using ‘slippage’, some scheduled collections have been disrupted and may take place a further day later than scheduled. We are working hard to recover all collections, and are doing our best to put additional resources in place to do so. We expect to be back on track within the next few days but if residents bins were not collected when they expected them to be, please ask them to leave them out for us to collect.”
