Tendring District Council Waste Collections for one week – commencing 5th March 2017 – due to icy conditions

Tendring District Council (TDC) with its contractors Veolia has decided to suspend waste collections on Friday in light of the continuing icy conditions and the yellow alert for snow and ice from the Met Office for Friday.

The following plan has been drawn up for next week, assuming that conditions are appropriate on Monday for collections to continue, this will enable Veolia to catch up on rounds missed due to the snow.

  • Monday’s collection will be as normal.
  • Tuesday – Friday collection rounds will be black bags and food waste ONLY (I.e. no recycling) – this will allow the recycling vehicles to collect residual waste as there could be double the usual amount of waste as compared to normal.
  • Friday collection round homes are asked to put out their normal recycling for that week, out for collection on SATURDAY MARCH 10.
  • Full collections will resume as normal from Monday, March 12, on the recycling week as advertised.

This scheme offers the most efficient way of getting back to normal at a time of high demand across the region.
