Central Bedfordshire Council's Waste teams have put together a plan and new collection schedule that will get rid of the backlog of collections in the south of the area that were caused due to snow during the past week.
The advice to residents is as follows:
* Today, December 24, crews will be focusing on clearing black bin waste and recycling that was missed on Friday 18th December and also all accessible communal black bins and sacks that have been missed so far
* From, Bank Holiday, Monday, December 28, the crews will collect residual waste from both that day's scheduled collections and the missed residual from Monday December 21 collections and so on through the week. They will also collect recycling from residents who are due to have their normal fortnightly recycling collection in the week commencing December 28. Unfortunately the additional recycling collections scheduled for the rest of the area over Christmas will not now be able to go ahead
* From Monday. January 4, 2010, those due to receive a fortnightly black bin collection will receive one. Unfortunately the additional recycling collections scheduled for these areas over Christmas will not be able to go ahead. Recycling collections for the rest of the area i.e. those who would have received recycling collections this week, will continue as normal
* Reasonable amounts (a couple of sacks) of extra waste and recycling put out next to bins will also be collected

Councillor David McVicar, Central Bedfordshire Council's portfolio holder for safer and stronger communities, said: "Waste crews have been working hard to try and keep and disruption minimal but unfortunately due to dangerous conditions, caused by the winter weather, some bin collections had to be postponed.
"I am pleased that we now have a firm plan of attack which will see any backlog cleared as quickly possible. I thank all residents for their patience during this time and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
