Rubbish Collections

SDC will always try to collect refuse and recycling on scheduled collection days, but adverse weather, such as snowy conditions, may mean that they are unable to do so. If this happens they will try their best to return within two days depending on weather and road conditions around the district. Therefore please leave your rubbish and recycling out for this period. If they do not manage to collect within two days, they will not be returning, so please bring your refuse and/or recycling back in and put it out for collection, as normal, for the next scheduled collection day. Note that there will be no collections on Sundays, so if your collection was missed on Friday please leave it out till Monday.

Keeping the roads in the Parish free from ice and snow is the responsibility of Gloucestershire County Council. Roads that have been identified as key routes are pre-salted and dealt with first in the case of ice and snow. Snow wardens work with the County Divisional Surveyors to help clear snow, and to keep the County Council informed of the conditions in outlying villages.

Grit bins are provided by both the County and the Parish Council, but providing the grit/salt itself is the responsibility of the County Council. Grit/salt from a roadside bin or heap is for use on public roads only, and if you use it yourself please remember just a little goes a long way. Bins are difficult to replenish in bad conditions, and even a fine sprinkling of grit/salt is very effective in temperatures down to about -7C.
