Freezing overnight conditions could cause delays for
Peterborough City Council crews emptying household refuse and
recycling bins tomorrow (Tuesday 30 November 2010).
Michael Robb from Peterborough City Services said: “Tuesday
collections primarily focus on villages and rural areas where
snowfall and frost may be more severe and persistent.
“Naturally, our teams will make every effort to maintain their
normal schedule of collections but severe frosts can cause
treacherous conditions for both the workers and their freighter
lorries. Once a 26-tonne freighter starts to slide on ice there is
very little that will stop it, so drivers have to be
“Householders should put their bins out as normal and our teams
will empty them just as soon as possible.”
