More than 4,000 households in Welwyn Hatfield are still waiting for their rubbish to be collected after ice and snow prevented collections at the beginning of the week.

In total, about 4,080 households have been affected by the missed collections, but Welwyn Hatfield Council hopes to have all rubbish picked up by Saturday.

Members of the public contacted the council on social media asking if additional rubbish accumulated during this week would also be picked up if left in black sacks next to bins, but were told this was not an option.

A council spokesman said: “Crews are unable to collect excess waste due to delayed collections.

“They empty up to 14,000 bins per day and collecting loose bags of waste would delay crews trying to catch up.

“We are aiming to make collections at all roads missed by Saturday, and ask residents to store any excess waste for their next collection.”
