There are no disruptions to council services at present. If bad weather arrives or there is a civil emergency, please check this page for the latest information on revised services and building closures.
When roads are icy, refuse and recycling vehicles may not be able to safely access some roads. In very cold weather, it is also possible that the contents of brown bins can become frozen solid. This means we may be unable to collect the contents.
