Waste collections resume

Waste collections resume

10 July 2017 update:

There is no longer an exclusion zone in place, Waste Services have caught up with outstanding collections today and others will resume as normal tomorrow (Tuesday 11 July 2017).

5 July 2017 update:

The Police have reduced their exclusion zone, therefore less properties are now affected by suspended waste collections.

The area that is still affected by the exclusion includes:

  • Henry Street
  • Gervase Street
  • Deyne Avenue
  • Mary Street (from Exeter Road to Oswald Road)
  • Doncaster Road (from  Exeter Road to Oswald Road)
  • Exeter Road (from Mary Street to Doncaster Road)
  • Oswald Road (from Mary Street to Doncaster Road)

Our Highways and Neighbourhood Services teams continue to work closely with the Police to keep disruptions to waste collections and other services to a minimum. We expect our refuse collectors to be able to return to the above streets on Monday 10 July.

4 July 2017

Due to an ongoing Police enquiry, the Police have requested that all residential and trade waste collections in an area of Scunthorpe be suspended for five days from today. This includes Exeter Road, Cliff Gardens, Oswald Road and Doncaster Road and all the streets within that boundary area. You can download a map of the affected area [PDF, 196Kb].

Our refuse collectors are planning to go back on Monday 10 July to complete the suspended collections. This is subject to Police clearance once they have completed their enquiries.

Other services that may be affected include: 

  • Mechanical and hand sweeping
  • Litter collection
  • Highway maintenance and repairs
  • Grounds maintenance
  • Routine gully maintenance
  • Routine street lighting maintenance
  • Graffiti removal   

Once clearance is given for these services to resume, we will ensure that additional resources are deployed to deal with any issues.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause as we support the Police with their enquiries.

We will keep our website up-to-date should the position change. You can also see the Police statements on the Humberside Police website
