Bad weather

Waste & Recycling Services Collections

Potential for Snow

The Met Office have issued an advanced ‘yellow’ warning of snow which means that waste and recycling collections may be disrupted.  The extent to which it will affect the Forest of Dean area is unclear and residents expecting waste or recycling collections should still present their bins and containers as usual at the kerbside by 7.30am. 

Any disruption to services will be published here and on our automated waste and recycling telephone line 01594 812 666.

Please follow the advice on our disruption to waste and recycling services page.
