SNOW chaos has caused disruptions to bin collections across the borough as the council was forced to close all recycling centres.

Earlier today (January 14), council bosses announced that they would suspend all bin collections across Barnsley as many drivers have been left stranded following the dangerous conditions.

A spokesperson for Barnsley Council said: “We have taken the difficult decision to suspend domestic waste collections and close our household waste recycling centres due to the current snowfall and extremely difficult driving and working conditions for our staff.

“Staff who would have been collecting bins are now working to support our gritting teams.

“We’re sorry about the inconvenience this causes, and we’ll get back on track as soon as it’s safe to do so.”
