Wheelie bins roll-out across Welwyn Hatfield

NEW wheelie bins will be handed out to Welwyn Hatfield residents from Monday, as the borough council presses ahead with fortnightly collections.

It is expected the roll-out will take around six weeks.

But a council spokesman warned: “With over 90,000 bins to deliver, it is inevitable that some errors will occur.”

If you have not received your bins by Sunday, April 3, call the council on 01707 357000.

Meanwhile, Serco binmen missed further collections this week – with a number of roads in Welwyn, Oaklands and the Ayots not serviced.
