Dear Members and town and parish council contacts,


As explained in my last update, collections were delayed this morning given the heavy snow. The snow has now stopped and the weather is brightening (for now). We currently expect to complete all of today’s scheduled collections today.


We are still catching up on yesterday’s collections. In the Kettering and Corby area, we hope to catch-up today but will continue to monitor progress. In the Wellingborough area: Missed recycling will be collected on Saturday. Missed general waste will be collected on Monday. The East Northants area are largely on track with collections and we expect everything to be complete today.


Residents are requested to leave their bins out for collection. If they did not receive a collection yesterday, they do not have to report their bins as missed.


HWRCs in Rushden, Kettering and Wellingborough are now open. There is a delay opening our Corby site while staff clear the snow and place grit to make roadways and walkways safe. We expect to open soon.


Regular updates are available on our website here: Service updates – Snow | North Northamptonshire Council (northnorthants.gov.uk)


Thank you to you and your communities for your patience and understanding.
