Keep Yourself Emergency Aware

Emergency Information

**BIN UPDATE WEDNESDAY 17th JANUARY 2018**

Due to continued weather conditions today we were unable to access some roads and streets to empty the bins.

Please leave your bins out tomorrow at 7.00am and we will endeavour to get them emptied depending on weather conditions. Should your bin not be emptied tomorrow bring it back in and leave out the following day at 7.00am.

We will have extra crews out from Thursday-Saturday to mop-up any missed bins.

The Council's Emergency Planning Group meets regularly and, with its statutory partners, look to its role in potential emergency situations.

As the this cold snap hits it is sensible to have important emergency contact numbers in the event of these services being needed.

Also know how to turn off your water,electricity and gas supplies and where these connection feeds are in your home.
