Please note: On windy days crews will take
every precaution to return bins in such a way as to minimize
chances of them being blown into the road – this may mean your
food bins are left lying down rather than leaving them standing for
the wind to blow them over and risk damage or loss.
Enterprise, the infrastructure maintenance company is working in
partnership with Peterborough City Council in a 23 year contract to
deliver key frontline services to Peterborough and the surrounding
areas. This partnership brings innovation and investment to develop
the services and deliver significant value for money.
