Rochdale council has confirmed regular bin collections will be taking place as planned.

Islanders are already among the best in the country for recycling and the authority is pulling out all the stops to ensure waste collection services continue with minimal disruption at this challenging time.

The Blackburn ad Darwen site (pictured above) has also closed.

"I want to thank everyone for playing their part in helping us keep these vital services going and to our front-line workers who are working hard to ensure everyone's waste continues to be dealt with safely and responsibly".

These, and other hygiene products, should be bagged and placed in rubbish bins.

West Sussex County Council runs 11 Household Waste Recycling Sites where residents are able to dispose of bulky unwanted items and materials.

The council have stressed that kerbside collection of general rubbish bins and green recycling bins will be uninterrupted - and residents are asked to put out their bins as they normally would.

Cllr Andrew Lee, executive member for waste management, told residents to hang on to bulky waste until the sites reopen.

Reductions in collections of kitchen scraps come amid concerns that there will be an increase in food waste as people throw away the fresh food they had stockpiled in panic-buying which saw supermarket shelves emptied.

Bury Council said brown bin collections were cancelled this week and next "while we prioritise emptying grey, green and blue bins instead".

"In the coming weeks, more will need to be done". These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste.

Garden waste collections have also been suspended.

'Any disruption to recycling services will be a last resort and, if this is unavoidable, we must not allow it to break our national recycling habit in the long term.

The spokeswoman added: "Anyone with garden waste is asked to take it to their nearest household waste recycling centre or consider home composting". However, due to staff shortages, the council is warning that it may need to suspend some services at short notice.
