Your waste collections - adverse weather conditions - Monday 11th December

on Mon, 11/12/2017 - 11:42am

Some of today's (11/12/17) waste and recycling collections are being affected by adverse weather conditions. Please see below a message that the Vale is sharing with residents. The Vale website will be updated, along with social media.

The Vale's waste collection crews are out and about emptying bins where they can, although most side streets are too dangerous for their 26 tonne trucks.

If it is safe to do so, please put your bins out as normal.  If the bins in your street aren't emptied on your normal collection day, please leave them out for three days and they will try and come back to get them.  If they haven't managed to get back to you in three days, bring your bins back in and they will come and get them next time they're due.  If this is the case, they will collect extra waste left out next to your bin next time around.

Even if the roads around you are clear, it might still be difficult for our waste collection crews to reach you - that might be because the roads between you and their depot are not passable for their large trucks or it might just be that the snow and ice has slowed the crew down so much that they aren't able to finish their complete rounds in one day. 

The Vale are very sorry for any disruption and inconvenience this causes you - they are doing the best we can to get out to as many of you as they can, but the safety of the general public out on the roads, and of their waste collection crews is their first priority.

The latest information will be available on their website -
