Refuse collection update following bad weather

Falsgrave Park in the snow6 February


Scarborough Borough Council staff have been working throughout the day to maintain bin collections across the borough and assisting North Yorkshire County Council staff in gritting streets and roads.


The majority of refuse and waste collections have been carried out as scheduled except properties on Church Street and Chapel Street in Filey and approximately six properties in the Weaponess Valley area of Scarborough due to icy conditions; these will be collected tomorrow.


Collections in Glaisdale, Castleton, Commondale and Fryup in the northern part of the borough have also been affected due to icy road conditions and these will be re-scheduled as soon as the roads are accessible. 


Borough council street cleansing and grounds maintenance staff have been working with North Yorkshire County Council operatives to help grit Scarborough town centre side streets, Ramshill shopping area, Falsgrave Road shopping area as well as Victoria Road and Castle Road.  Other regions within Scarborough such as highly used pedestrian areas in the Barrowcliff area, including Scalby Road leading to the hospital have also been treated.


A team is supplying salt/grit to the Filey area and will be providing gritting support in Filey and Hunmanby.  In Whitby gritting has taken place in areas such as car parks and high footfall zones.
