Bin collection efforts

WEATHER and road conditions are improving and although some disruption to the waste collection service today (Thursday) is inevitable, the council will be providing the following refuse collection services ...

Black bin collections

Residents who have Thursday services should put out their BLACK bins for collection as normal.

Crews will do their best to reach all households but some areas are still inaccessible and if you cannot be reached due to ice and snow, please take your bin back in, and efforts will be made to empty it on the next normal collection day.

The council will take reasonable amounts of excess waste from households where collection has not been possible.

Recycling Collections

Both brown and paper recycling collections will continue to be suspended.

Residents should keep hold of their recyclables and the council will take them on the next collection.

Crews normally engaged on recycling duties will carry out essential gritting duties and assist the black bin crews.


Please check the Wigan Council website for the latest information as weather conditions have not stabilised and the above plan is subject to change at short notice.
