Extra brown bin collection in parts of Ipswich on Saturday

Some Ipswich brown bins will be collected on Saturday.

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.
