THE bin bag build up is now improving as North Somerset Council managed to collect 85 per cent of rubbish yesterday (Mon).

After the cold snap, frosted bin bags lined the streets as refuse lorries failed to negotiate the icy roads.

Some locations are still unreachable but residents are asked to leave out their waste and it will be collected as soon as possible.

A council spokesman said: "Residents should continue to put out their waste on their usual collection day.

"Don't forget to recycle even in these difficult conditions. Recycling boxes and green bags should still be put out on their usual collection day."

Somerset County Council says that with improvements on many roads in the area, there is a chance the Somerset Waste Partnership can now catch up with the refuse and recycling collections.

People are advised to place their recycling and refuse out for collection on the scheduled day.

If it is not collected that day and it can be safely left out, it will be collected as soon as possible, weather permitting.

Those who have gone the longest without a collection, depending on whether roads and pavements can be safely negotiated, will be prioritised.
