Delays to bin collections in North Lincolnshire
Brown bin collections have been cancelled as adverse weather affects waste and recycling collections.
The brown bin (organics) collections are being cancelled with effect from Tuesday, January 22 for the rest of the week.
The crews will be helping with the additional need for collecting the green/grey and burgundy bins.
North Lincolnshire Council along with the recycling contractor SITA is ensuring that disruptions to waste and recycling collections are kept to a minimum.
Some side streets have been missed today (Monday, January 21) due to icy footpaths and vehicles blocking access.
People who have had their street missed are advised to leave the appropriate container outside of their property for collection as soon as possible.
Crews were unable to complete all collections in Burton upon Stather today.
They will return tomorrow (Tuesday, January 22) to collect the bins that were missed, if weather permitting.
All eight household recycling centres are operating as usual after staff made sure they were safe for the public to access.
A North Lincolnshire Council spokesperson, said: "The crews are working hard to complete as many collections as possible. However, the safety of the council's vehicles and crews, pedestrians and other road users are of paramount importance at all times, especially in the current snow and icy weather.
"We try to ensure that disruptions to all of our services are kept to a minimum during severe weather conditions. We will keep the public informed if any of our services cannot be carried out."
