In a statement yesterday (20 July) the Council confirmed that several roads will be experiencing delays to their recycling and garden waste collections due to the problems.

The Council told residents to continue to leave recycling at the boundary of their home and assured them that a crew will remove this as soon as possible.

They apologised for any inconvenience this will cause.

Below is the full list of roads that have been affected.

Missed Recycling Collections:

Once reported, the authority "will return within 2 working days."

You must leave the bin by the boundary to allow the crew to re-attempt collection.
