Cotswold Emergency Refuse Collections Implemented
Cotswold emergency refuse collection plan will be launched on Wednesday 22 December.
Cotswold District Council’s waste contractor, SITA UK, is to activate its emergency refuse collection plan for the first time tomorrow. This means that, although SITA workers cannot carry out door-to-door collections, they have established collection points at various car parks across the district which will enable smaller delivery vehicles to access residents who who may have missed a collection or are due to miss one.
On Wednesday 22nd December, collection points are planned at the following locations from 10:00am:
* Station Road Car Park, Moreton-in-Marsh
* Rissington Road Car Park, Bourton-on-the-Water
Residents are reminded that this collection service is for refuse only and they should bring their waste along in plastic sacks because the vehicles will not have the mechanisms required to empty wheeled bins.
Should there be further snowfall during the evening of Tuesday 21st December which makes roads impassable, then this service may not go ahead. If in doubt, residents are advised to check on the Council’s website or contact the waste hotline on 01285 623 123, before making a trip to one of these locations.
SITA has confirmed that there will be no Saturday waste ‘catch-up days’ on 25 December and 01 January owing to the fact that they fall on public holidays.
