Bin collections called off amid safety fears
9:24am Monday 21st January 2013 in News
NO rubbish will be collected today as icy conditions lead to concern for safety.
Waste and recycling staff will instead be working on Thurrock Council's snow plan.
A spokesman for the authority said: " Ice and snow on side roads and pavements means Thurrock's waste and recycling collections due for Monday have been suspended.
"Although all main routes are clear and open, safety concerns for the public and staff have forced the decision.
"Waste and recycling staff will be redeployed to the snow plan which is available for inspection through Thurrock Council’s website (www.thurrock.gov.uk) and clicking on the Ready for Winter icon."
The council is set to decide about tomorrow's collections in the morning,
