SUFFOLK Coastal and Waveney District Councils have announced changes to bin collections due to the severe weather.

In Waveney, all collections have been cancelled due to the appalling weather in the district, making it both dangerous for the teams and impossible to get to the homes. These are now rescheduled for Monday.

In Suffolk Coastal all brown bins (food and garden waste) have been cancelled, but those teams have been switched to the blue and grey lidded collection rounds.

The Suffolk Coastal Service teams will attempt to get to every home due for a collection today and empty the grey lidded rubbish bins and the blue lidded recycling bins.

The weather may mean that not all homes due for a grey or blue lidded bin collection are accessible today, but any home not visited today, will be visited on Monday.

Brown bin collections on Monday have also been cancelled in the Suffolk Coastal region to enable teams to catch up with grey and blue lidded bin collections.

Brown bins due to be collected today or Monday will not be collected until their next scheduled collection – a fortnight later.

A spokesman for Suffolk Coastal said: “We would ask residents due a grey and blue lidded bin collection today to put them out as normal, but of course also be careful themselves as it may be very slippery underfoot!”

  • We had this a couple of yeara ago for three weeks on the run. I phoned and asked for council tax refund but they wouldn't and they don't have a clue how much of my monthly ct bill is spent on bin collection. It seems strange to me that you pay for a service you don't receive

  • In part of the IP2 area, the bin collections were a day late. The roads were fine! Any excuse!

  • So, our food bins will go un-emptied for 4 weeks - once more Suffolk Coastal gives priority to the unimportant rubbish and leaves rotting food to smell and fester. The rats, squirrels & other vermin will be happy though! Not so long ago Suffolk Coastal started a plastic bag clothing reclamation scheme - fill it, leave it for collection and the bag will be replaced. This didn't last long, the bag was filled and then put straighter into the vehicle's compacter when collected with no new bag left! Suffolk Coastal - dear Suffolk Coastal.
