Expect bin collection delays, council says

RESIDENTS can expect further disruptions to bin collections, Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council said today.

It said the snowy weather means a ‘restricted’ service will continue.

In a statement it said: “For domestic waste, where it is safe to do so the council will collect black wheelie bins and one full bag of additional side waste.

“Green recycling boxes – paper and card – and plastic will also be collected where it is safe to do so, as well as any excess paper, card or plastic that does not fit in the box.”

It says householders can take waste to recycling facilities.

The statement says: “We hope residents appreciate that for both waste and recycling collections, the resumption of normal service in the borough is hugely dependent on the prevailing weather conditions.”
