Wirral Council reschedules wheelie bin collections because of icy weather





WHEELIE bin collections on Wirral are being rescheduled due to the icy weather - causing yet more havoc for householders.

In a statement, the council said it had "been forced to reschedule some rubbish collections after icy conditions have made it difficult to operate collection vehicles".

The statement added: "The borough’s refuse and recycling collections have been significantly affected by the current adverse weather conditions, meaning that some rounds for both green and grey bins will not be completed on Wednesday, December 23 and Thursday, December 24.

"If any residents are scheduled for a collection on either of these days, but do not have their bin emptied by 6pm on Christmas Eve, they are advised to take their bin back onto their premises and put it back out for collection Sunday, December 27 by 7am in the morning.

"There are no collections planned for Christmas Day or Boxing Day.

"Collection crews will be working flat out to resume normal collections and clear any back-log resulting from recent weather conditions."

If you're a household who normally has a bin emptied on a Friday, your next collection will take place on Sunday, December 27.

Ensure that your bin is placed out on the kerb edge or communal collection point by 7am.

These Christmas working arrangements have been detailed in your latest Waste and Recycling Calendar.

As regards extra waste, Biffa will take any additional side bags placed beside the green bins arising from late collections.

Make sure all extra rubbish is secured to prevent litter from escaping and that no sharp objects are placed inside the bags.

Side waste can not be taken alongside grey recycling bins, says the council.

This is because all recycling must be delivered loose to the sorting facility at Bidston.

As most extra waste generated at Christmas is recyclable, such as cardboard packaging and wrapping paper, recyclers may wish to store extra recyclable rubbish somewhere dry if your grey bin is full.

You may then top up your grey bin on future collect days in the New Year.

Alternatively, glass bottles and jars, tins and paper can be taken to recycling facilities across the borough.

RESIDENTS in Wirral whose bins were not emptied due to icy weather should put them out to be emptied tomorrow.

The borough’s rubbish and recycling collections were delayed on December 23 and Christmas Eve because binmen found it difficult to operate lorries in bad conditions.

If residents were scheduled for a collection on either day but did not have their green or grey bin emptied by 6pm on Christmas Eve they should put it back out for collection by 7am tomorrow.

There are no collections planned today.

Wirral council said collection crews will be working flat out to resume normal collections and clear any backlog resulting from recent conditions.

I overheard a binman who lives over the road it would be collected on Wednesday, and then on xmas eve. I'm not sure the management know their arse from their elbow, they don't seem to be able to organise a lorry to go round and empty bins.

Ice has never bothered them in the past, this is utterly pathetic and a true sign of the times.

Green one was emptied today. Grey one still there!
This year they've been really shitty over picking bins up, the road gritters have been a bit slack, I wonder what next?
