Notification from NKDC - Garden Waste Collections Cancelled
Regretfully today, Monday 8th February and tomorrow, Tuesday 9th February, North Kesteven District Council is having to cancel its garden waste collection as it focuses resources on collecting black bin residual waste.Their focus is on using all of their available crew to collect black bins; rather than putting crew at additional risk driving the whole route in these snowy conditions to collect what they anticipate to be a small number of brown garden waste bins.The crews will not be able to return for any garden waste bins that have been presented and not emptied. The next collection will be as scheduled.NKDC are sorry for this action, but hope residents agree that it is important that the crew can focus fully on clearing household waste at this time, given the additional time constraints in operating safely in the snow. Additionally, they need to build in time for routine key worker virus tests for the crew and office staff to ensure they are fit and able to maintain the safe operation of your waste services.Whether NKDC have to suspend further garden waste collections later in the week will be subject to review. Updates will be posted on their social media channels and on their website at https://www.n-kesteven.gov.uk/current-service-disruptions/Residents can sign up to receive information about service disruption by email: www.n-kesteven.gov.uk/stayconnectedThe temporary disruption of garden waste collections is covered by the terms and conditions for the service.
