Welwyn Hatfield refuse collections suspended

REFUSE and recycling rounds have been suspended for all Welwyn Hatfield residents.

It looks likely that a revised schedule will not be announced by Welwyn Hatfield Council.

Current advice states that collections usually on a Thursday will not be picked up until next Thursday for example.

However a council spokeswoman said the situation could change.

She said: “Waste and recycling will be collected when the conditions change and it becomes safe to do so.”

Asked about the revised schedule she added: “We don’t want to raise expectations.

“A definite decision will be made on Friday.
