Bin collections suspended

South Tyneside Council amends refuse collection plans

It’s a little more inconvenience to deal with, but I’m sure we’ll cope, if you were expecting your bins to be emptied this weekend in South Tyneside you will probably understand how difficult it is for drivers of the council’s bin wagons to manoeuvre these huge machines around tight back lanes on sheet ice. Therefore until road conditions improve a bit, all bin collections have been suspended until next week, and it would help if you don’t park your car in the back lane.

Here’s the meat from the council’s press release:

The advice to all residents is not to put their waste bins out this weekend. From next week, resources will be focused on normal collections and any extra bags of rubbish will also be taken.

  • Waste bins – residents should just put their grey waste bin out on their normal collection day, together with any extra bags due to delays (please note only domestic waste will be collected)
  • Black Kerb-it box – residents should put their black box out only on the normal collection day
  • Blue wheeled recycling bin – anyone on the new recycling scheme should put their blue bin out each day until it has been emptied.

If you wish you may also take your own recyclable rubbish to Middlefields at Tyne dock, South Shields.
