The recent snowfall has disrupted collection services in South Gloucestershire causing inconvenience to residents.

Council services were unable to collect bin waste on Friday due to the conditions. On Monday and Tuesday trucks were back out collecting but there were some roads where it was deemed not safe to collect.

A council spokesman said: "Our advice to residents is, If we are unable to collect on your usual due date because of bad weather, please take your waste back in and bring it out on the next due date for that material."

"For food waste in the food buckets this will be just one week later. For other materials, such as the black bin waste, this will be a fortnight later. We recognise that this is an inconvenience. We suggest that additional waste that can no longer be fitted inside the black bin, be stored in bags inside a container such as the green wheeled bin and taken out and placed alongside the black wheeled bin on the next due date."

The collection crews will be instructed to then take up to an equivalent of an additional black bin's bagged waste alongside the black wheeled bin from each property on the next collection (about three bags for a normal size bin).
