Snow update: waste and recycling

Snow update: waste and recycling

Latest update: 3.45pm Friday, 13 January 2016

Our waste crews had hoped to return to Snowshill today but were unable to do so. They will return within the next five working days to empty the missed recycling bins so please leave your bins out at the kerbside. Many apologies for the disruption.

If you build up excess recycling over the weekend, blue bags are available for collection from the Public Services Centre on Gloucester Road in Tewkesbury. These bags can go out next to your blue bin for collection. 

There are also recycling banks around the borough that will take the same recycling that would normally be put in your blue bin.

Update: 12.30pm Friday, 13 January 2017

There has been some disruption to recycling collections in Snowshill today. The road up to the village is very icy and has caused the collection vehicle to slide. We are looking at the next available time for the vehicle to return to make these collections and will share this as soon as we know.

Food waste collections have been unaffected as the smaller, more agile vehicle used to collect food waste has been able to access the village.

Update: 10.30am Friday, 13 January, 2017

Our waste and recycling collection crews are all out today in the Bishop’s Cleeve and Twyning areas with no apparent disruption caused by the snow fall or icy conditions so far.

If there are any collections which cannot take place today due to particularly icy roads or pavements, we will update this page. 

If your bin has not been emptied by the end of the day, please report it here or call us on 01684 295010.

Update: 11am Thursday, 12 January, 2017

A yellow weather warning for South West England has been issued by the Met Office, which means that there may be some disruption to waste and recycling collections in parts of the borough tomorrow.

If you’re expecting a waste or recycling collection, please present your bins and food caddies as usual at the kerbside by 7am.

We will keep this page updated, so if the situation worsens, please keep checking
