Waste Collection in Hot Weather

Dear Digital Champions


Once again, ahead of the expected very hot weather, we would be grateful if you could share the below information with your networks locally. It is about bin collections during the upcoming expected hot weather, and contains some helpful advice about ensuring bins are presented at the kerbside the night before they are due to be collected. Please feel free to copy and paste the below italicised text. There is an accompanying image for you to use in case it is helpful.


During the forecast extremely hot weather, please ensure your bins are put out the night before they are due to be collected. This is because Greater Cambridge Shared Waste crews are likely to be starting work earlier in the day than usual, to try and avoid the worst of the heat. This means your bins may get emptied earlier in the morning than you are used to.
