Some Ipswich brown bins will be collected on Saturday.

Staff shortages have meant that some parts of Ipswich have not had brown bin collections as planned this week – but the borough is planning extra trips at the weekend to collect garden waste.

Any household that has missed out on a collection – and on Tuesday much of the Crofts area was missed – should leave their brown bins out overnight on Friday for collection on Saturday.

Any black bin that is missed should be collected the following day. A spokesman for the council apologised for the problem but said all bins should be emptied by the weekend.
