Crews out to collect rubbish backlog
WASTE and collection crews have been working hard to catch up on waste and recycling rounds according to North Somerset Council.
The collections were disrupted over the Christmas period due to the extreme weather and crews working for waste contractor, May Gurney, have been out catching up with the backlog of rubbish piling up on the district’s streets.
Residents are advised to leave out all waste and recycling that has not yet been collected and asked to sort recyclable materials into carrier bags to help speed up collections.
On Tuesday, 88 per cent of collections were completed in Clevedon, Yatton, Congresbury, Claverham and Cleeve areas.
Anyone whose property has been missed is asked to still leave containers out for collection.
