"A small kerbside recycling box collection vehicle has returned today to empty the boxes.
"We are not aware of any missed recycling boxes due to the snow and ice.
"Wheeled bins at Overton Court, Barton upon Humber have had to be left unemptied today.
"A vehicle will return tomorrow (Wednesday, January 16) if there is an improvement in the road and footpath conditions.
"If a street is deemed unsafe and not accessible the containers will be left and will be collected as soon as possible.
People who have had their street missed are advised to leave the appropriate container at the boundary of their property for collection."
The community meals team has also kicked their winter plan into action, during the snow.
A North Lincolnshire Council spokeswoman, said: "The Community Meals team always has a winter plan in place to manage services during severe weather conditions.
"This plan was implemented yesterday (Monday 14 January), which ensured that the service was unaffected.
"The council, working in partnership with Age UK, delivered a Winter Warm Pack with today's meal.
"The pack includes a woollen hat, gloves, a foil blanket, dried soup and advice on how to keep warm and well in the cold winter months.
"To ensure the community meals service isn't affected, the team are continually reviewing the weather forecasts to ensure meals can be delivered."
