Residents have been advised to use recycling centres and the household waste recycling sites

Allderdale Borough Council has announced it will suspend all garden waste, glass, can and plastic recycling collections for two months.

This is due to missed collections following a new contract with FCC Environment in April which included a new collection service.

Allerdale Council said the suspension will allow it to focus on domestic and paper collections.

Residents have been advised to use recycling centres and the household waste recycling sites to dispose of their recycling and garden waste.

Allerdale Council apologised to residents affected.

In a statement on the council website, it said: “We are working with FCC Environment on a longer-term solution to the issues so that we can restart the normal collections again as soon as possible and ensure everyone gets a collection on their scheduled day.”

FCC holds an eight-year contract with Allerdale council which runs until March 2027.
