The Brown Bins in many areas on Saturday were not collected. The service simply did not have the resources available to do this. Martin Eearl has checked with the service and is advised as follows. There will be no further brown bin collection until advised. Please transfer any food waste it is possible to do so to the Grey bin and from now on put food waste directly into the Grey bin unless you are composting it. Please secure and store your brown bin as well as you are able to do.
