Important update about bin collections this coming weekPublished Sunday, 4th March 2018
THE decision to suspend bin collections this week was not taken lightly and we would like to thank residents for their patience and understanding during this unprecedented weather.
Weather permitting, we will attempt to collect all missed green bins on Monday 5 March.
For those residents whose grey bin collection was missed last week, please present your grey bin alongside your green bin on your normal green bin collection day this coming week.
Denise Ogden, Hartlepool Borough Council’s Director of Regeneration and Neighbourhoods, said: “The decision to suspend collections this week was taken because many of the town’s residential streets are snowbound, making them difficult - and in some cases impossible – to access by the Council’s large bin wagons.
“It has also meant that the Council has been able to re-direct staff resources to complement hard-pressed gritting teams and to carry out snow clearing operations across the town.
“I would like to put on record my thanks to the many staff who have worked round-the-clock this week in very challenging conditions.
“I would also like to apologise for any inconvenience caused during this disruption and thank the public for their continued support during what has been a very challenging week.”
Residents are asked to keep checking the Council’s website – www.hartlepool.gov.uk – and the Hartlepool Borough Council Refuse and Recycling Facebook page. Updates will also be provided via the Council’s corporate Twitter account @HpoolCouncil and its Hartlepool Borough Council Facebook page.
