Waste Service in the extreme heat

Please put your bins out the night before they’re due to be emptied this week. Biffa will begin waste collections at 5am on Monday 18 July and Tuesday 19 July due to the expected heatwave. This should help their crews avoid being out at the hottest part of the day. Even with the early start, it’s possible Biffa’s waste collection crews may not be able to complete their rounds.
