Refuse and recycling collections resume

Press Release: 03/02/2004

Severe snow and ice on Thursday 29 January meant refuse and recycling collections for that day throughout the Winchester City Council district had to be cancelled.

"It was impossible for collection crews to work on Thursday because of the potential health and safety risks to both members of the public and collection crews. I ask residents to accept our apologies for the unavoidable inconvenience," said Cllr Jim Wagner, Cabinet portfolio holder for health and well being.

Householders who did not get their refuse or recycling collected on 29 January will have the refuse collection resumed this Thursday, 5 February, and their recycling collection resumed on Thursday 12 February.

Any additional waste set out on these dates will be collected if properly contained and placed next to the wheeled refuse bin.
