Bin etiquette urged by council
With refuse collectors now on a two-week break, the local authority is urging residents to follow bin etiquette.
They want people to recycle their rubbish to help cope with the inevitable build up of household waste over the holiday period.
All households in the area should have received a card from Welwyn Hatfield Council explaining the etiquette for the Christmas and New Year break. They should also have been given two extra black plastic bin bags to help them cope with the increase in rubbish.
There will be no further refuse collections from homes in the area until January 4 and the local authority says residents will have to take extra care in managing their household waste.
The waste site at Cole Green on the A414 will be open from December 27 until December 30 and then again from January 2 but the council is warning that long queues are expected to build up.
The authority has set up a refuse service help line on 01707-357352 for anyone wanting further information. There is also an emergency number for the holiday period 01707 357800.
Two correspondents have written to this sites Have Your Say section raising their concerns about fly tipping in the area.
The comments and concerns are being passed on to the North Mymms Green Belt Society and the North Mymms Residents Association as well as being passed on to the local authority.
