Several areas across Sheffield have been under the cover of snow after a heavy fall on Boxing Day evening, causing havoc for the city’s bin emptying schedule. Waste collections were cancelled due to the extreme weather conditions in the days over Christmas and the New Year, leaving areas such as Whirlow, Sharrow Vale, Bradway, Dore, Totley, Milhouses, Brincliffe, Carter Knowle and Nether Edge without blue bin collections.
As providers of rubbish removal Sheffield services in Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham and Barnsley, we know just how quickly waste and rubbish can build up when it is not collected by the authorities. This recent disruption, which has left bins overflowing with festive waste, has caused a backlog of rubbish for many local areas, and great inconvenience for the residents of Sheffield.
Bagged Black Bin Waste Removal
Sheffield Council contractor Veolia urged residents to leave their bins on the street until they have been emptied, and advised that bin men will collect bagged extra black bin waste and small amounts of extra cardboard at the side of blue boxes or bins. Francis Drew, Veolia contract manager, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank residents for their patience. We hope the milder conditions forecast towards the end of the week will mean we can recover collections missed with the snow and ongoing icy conditions.”
Backlog of Rubbish After Heavy Snow Fall
Black bin collections were due on Tuesday December 30th, and the Sheffield Star reported that Veolia would carry out collections ‘where possible’. They were also dealing with a backlog of black bins that were due to be collected earlier in the week but cancelled due to the snow and ice. A Veolia spokesman said: “The weekend snowfall and ongoing icy conditions have resulted in delays to waste and recycling collections. Many side roads remain snowy and icy which make for difficult conditions for large refuse collection vehicles and collections staff to operate safely in.”
Alternative Waste Disposal Arrangements
For those of you who have more than just household waste to dispose of this New Year, whether you are having a clear out, a pre-spring clean, or are clearing a property altogether, Clearance and Clean Up can help. Even when the service isn’t disrupted by the snow, local bin collections won’t take extra rubbish or household items during their delivery, so alternative waste disposal arrangements will need to be made.
