“We ask all residents who had their black bin missed this week to put it out for collection by 5.30am on Monday, February 1.
“We cannot give an exact day that residents bin will be collected so please leave it on the kerbside until it has been emptied.
“Any overflow of household waste can be presented bagged at the side of the bin.
“Normal collections will resume week beginning Monday, February 8, in line with the collection calendar.

The majority of the recycling (grey) bins will be full by the next scheduled collection so we will take additional bags of recycling presented with the grey bin.
Assistant Director for Operations at the Council, Victoria Burgess, said: “We would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support to our crews and we are working hard to solve the issues we are facing around accumulation of household waste.
“I would ask residents to help our crews next week by not presenting bins that don’t require emptying.
“This will enable us to collect from properties more quickly.
“Please could you share this message with friends and family in the District as well as any elderly/vulnerable neighbours to make sure they have also picked up on this new announcement.
“Our focus in doing so is helping residents to manage their residual waste the best they can; whilst giving our team the time they need to recover from Covid-19.”
