A number of Launceston residents have been in touch to ask about missed rubbish collections. Due to the recent ice and snow, lots of homes haven't had their bins emptied over the past week. They are concerned because the next scheduled collection - on Tuesday - is being missed due to the Christmas holidays.
I have been in touch with the Council who confirm that the missed collections are due to many streets being inaccessible to bin lorries. They are aware of the missed collections and will be trying their best to get round as many missed areas as possible between now and Friday.
Their advice is for residents to leave their bins out ready for collection as they will have to move quickly when the ice clears.
