With inclement weather forecast again this week, the Parish Council would like to re-cap on the responsibilities of public authorities in relation to precautionary gritting and clearance of snow and ice. More »

Grit should not be taken from the bins by residents for use on their own properties.

The Parish Council undertakes 'Snow Warden' duties on behalf of the County Council to spread grit on certain designated areas using the grit from the Grit Bins located at various locations around the village.

Leicestershire County Council, as the Highway Authority, is responsible for the precautionary salting / gritting of public roads. Any queries relating to gritting and snow clearance should be addressed to the County Council on 0116 305 0001 or customerservices@leics.gov.uk

The Parish Council has no responsibility for gritting the roads. » Less

Please see below the latest statement issued by Harborough District Council regarding the bin collections.

Due to the severe weather in Harborough district last week, some bin collections in Harborough district were affected. More »

Crews are working very hard to catch up. Residents are being asked to leave bins presented. Extra resources are being made available to ensure that all collections happen.

Unfortunately, due to the severe winds [Storm Eleanor] some of Leicestershire County Council's landfill sites have been closed. This means refuse vehicles have further to travel to alternative landfill sites, so some delays are anticipated.

Despite this our collection crews are working extremely hard to reach all scheduled collections and pick up uncollected bins from last week.

Today (Wednesday 3 January), we have a fleet of refuse vehicles in the Broughton Astley area working on scheduled black bin collections and these will aim to return to Broughton Astley today (Wed) to collect recycling bins. We also have a collection crew out in Lutterworth picking up bins which were not collected last Wednesday and the normal scheduled work.

Normal scheduled collections will continue on Thursday and Friday this week. Missed bins from last Thursday and Friday will be collected either Thursday, Friday, Saturday this week or next Monday depending on how collections progress each day. Please keep bins presented at the kerbside.

We are asking residents not to report bins as a missed collection; but instead leave any missed bins presented and crews will endeavour to return and collect.

There will be further updates on the council's website and on social media.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank residents for their continued patience. » Less
