THE COUNCIL is changing the way residents order new bins.

From Monday 4 April Barnsley residents will no longer be able to collect waste or recycling bins they have ordered from Smithies Lane depot.

Instead residents will need to place an order for the bins online and the bin will be delivered to them.

The Council says that due to safety reasons, members of the public can no longer access the Smithies Lane depot, as it is a busy site with a constant flow of vehicle fleets making waste and recycling collections, providing neighborhood services and keeping highways maintained.
