WARRINGTON Borough Council’s bin
collections will return “back to normal” next week. Meanwhile the
council has announced its bin collection points for tomorrow (Friday)
as residents are asked to take their own bin bags to special collection
points due to the ongoing wintery conditions on many
Next week residents will be able to put out additional bin sacks with their black bin collections, but not the blue bins.
Heavy snow and ice over the last week has meant that bin collections have been cancelled as roads were deemed too treacherous for the wagons to get down.
There will be no household waste (black bin) bin collected from households this week. Instead, waste will be collected from ‘collection points’ set up to correspond with normal collection days.
Residents are asked to arrive with their bags at the collection points between 8am and 3pm and hand them to refuse collection crews who will put the bags in the wagons.
Any side waste can be left out for collection as we do have staff out in vans who are collecting side waste where possible.
The Green bin service which was due to start again on January 19 has now been put back two weeks.
