Have your say

Blue bin and box collections delayed by snow and ice in Rotherham will continue today and tomorrow.

The areas to have collections today include Swallownest, Aughton, Aston, Todwick, Fence, Orgreave and Whiston.

On Saturday areas which will have collections include Flanderwell, Bramley, Sunnyside, Wickersley, Brampton-En-Le-Morthen, Thurcroft, Listerdale, Brecks and Ravenfield.

Coun Mahroof Hussain, cabinet member for environment for Rotherham Council, said a number of areas were missed as the service was behind schedule due to the weather.

He said: “We obviously apologise for this.

“But all areas listed on the week one collection schedule will be collected by Saturday night.”
