Services affected by snow
13:37 23 January 2013
Some district council services may be affected by the bad weather.
A limited number of refuse collections have been affected, mostly in rural parts of Honiton. Where a collection has been missed the council will get there on Saturday to catch up – weather permitting. Residents are asked to leave their bins out in preparation. Householders should follow Twitter* or refer to the Council’s website for situation updates. *@RecyclingEDDC
Similarly a small number of recycling collections have not been possible, and in these cases householders are asked to hold on to their recycling for another week until their next normal collection day. Recycling side waste will also be collected at that time. Householders should follow Twitter* or refer to the Council’s website for situation updates. *@RecyclingEDDC
Clinical Waste Collections
Householders who have clinical waste collections which have been missed are also being asked to wait until their next scheduled weekly collection. In the meantime the Council can send out additional bags if they are needed.
The majority of dog bin collections will be completed as normal and any remaining should be caught up with on Friday this week.
The Council’s Knowle head office will close at 3.00 p.m. today to ensure that staff can return home safely while there is still light.
Business Task and Finish Forum Meeting
Tonight’s 6.00 p.m. meeting of a Task and Finish Forum to discuss the East Devon Business Forum has been postponed to ensure that councillors, staff and members of the public are best able to attend and get home safely. A new date will be announced soon.
