GREEN WASTE COLLECTIONS SUSPENDED
Green bin garden waste collections will be suspended by South Lakeland District Council (SLDC) from next Monday (30 March).
The move has been announced to ensure that the council can target its resources on maintaining grey bin and recycling collections during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
An SLDC spokesperson said: “We are having to adjust and revise our operations to meet the demands of responding to the Coronavirus outbreak and to ensure we can continue to deliver the most essential services relied on by our communities.
“That has meant looking carefully at the way we manage our waste and recycling collections within available resources and how we can best protect our residents and our staff, including ensuring our collection crews can work while observing social distancing guidelines.
“Our priority will always be to collect non-recyclable (grey bin) waste, but that means other collections may need to be temporarily suspended.’’
