Sheer volume of rubbish from festive period means collections may not be completed every day

People have been told that due to the 'sheer volume' of rubbish and recycling accumulated over the festive period, council workers may not be able to finish their full rounds every day.

South Holland District Council tweeted that, if this is the case, people should still leave their bags out and that they will be collected the following day.

The council apologised for any inconvenience it may cause.

South Holland District Councillor Roger Gambba-Jones, portfolio holder for place, said there was no way of knowing yet if the amount of waste and recycling is more than previous years.

He said: "It really is just to warn the public that if they do not complete the round they will come back the next day. We have not missed you."

He explained that due to the amount of waste being collected the trucks can become filled up and need to be emptied before going back to complete the rounds.
