Icy Weather: Bins Update

Just got this from SODC Bins Dept. Hope it helps:
“Our waste crews were out on the roads today (Monday) attempted to make collections.  However, the ice on untreated roads in some residential areas made it too dangerous for the waste crews to drive their lorries on.
The crews will be out again tomorrow, but as the temperature is not forecast to rise significantly, we anticipate having a similar problem then.  Our current advice to residents is that if their bin remains unemptied they should leave it at the roadside and we will endeavour to get back to them if conditions improve.  However, given the daily increasing backlog until conditions improve, if we are unable to get back to them within three days, they should take their bins back in. 
If this occurs, we will collect their waste on the next scheduled day for that kind of waste (if it was a landfill waste collection missed for example, it will be collected on their next scheduled landfill waste day).  Under these circumstances, any excess waste left out next to full bins in a bin bag or other container will be collected.
We will continue to update residents via our website at the address below, and via twitter and our text message service and the smartphone app Binfo, as well as notifying the local press.
Kind regards
Andy Roberts
Senior Shared Communications Officer”
