Due to the severe weather which has caused access problems for our vehicles and unsafe conditions, refuse and recycling collections will not take place in Bournemouth today.

Current weather reports suggest that the adverse conditions will improve towards the end of the week and, weather permitting, arrangements will be put in place to collect two weeks refuse and recycling next Tuesday 10 February. Residents are asked to leave out their refuse and recycling on this date for collection.

Councillor Robert Lawton, Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport said: “We have been forced to suspend all our waste collections because of the bad weather and safety concerns. We are advising residents to take in their refuse and leave out their wheelie bins next Tuesday when they will be collected, weather permitting. We have made this decision on safety grounds due to the icy conditions and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank residents for their patience.”
