BIN collections in Suffolk Coastal will be back to normal from tomorrow.

Teams from Suffolk Coastal Services Ltd have been catching up with all the blue and grey-lidded bin collections that were missed last week because of the severe weather conditions.

But as of Thursday collections will be back to normal.

Andrew Nunn, cabinet member for the green environment at Suffolk Coastal District Council, said: “The excellent news is that every home should have had a collection during the last week.

“The SCS teams have continued to collect despite the deep snow and ice covering many pavements and rural lanes and deserve praise for their efforts.

“To achieve this splendid feat, SCS had to temporarily suspend all its brown bin collections, but now it has caught up with all its main refuse and recycling collections we can ask people to start putting out their brown bin on the next scheduled day they are due to be emptied.

“Last week's heavy snow made it impossible for our teams to work and because of the dangers underfoot that residents would have faced putting out their bins, we had no choice but to stop all our services.

“I thank everyone for their patience and would ask everyone to put things out for collection on their normal scheduled day.”
