Residents can now safely dispose their household waste thanks to the return of Fenland District Council’s bulky waste collection service.
Normal booking has now resumed with measures in place to ensure the safety of residents and collection crews, with items such as furniture, fridges and televisions now accepted.
Previously, the council had only accepted pre-booked kerbside collections during the peak of the coronavirus outbreak.
Cllr Peter Murphy, council portfolio holder for the environment, said: “The service offers residents a cost-effective way to get rid of their household waste and we can guarantee that we dispose of the waste correctly.
“In line with our collection policy, items are only collected from the outside of properties and staff are not able to enter any part of the home, including back gardens, to retrieve items.”
