COLLECTIONS of green bins for garden waste will resume across Barnsley next week following suspension due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Residents have been advised they can put their green bin out as normal on their next scheduled collection day from Tuesday.

Coun Chris Lamb, cabinet spokesman for place, said: “Covid-19 continues to present enormous challenges for us all, and among them is our ability to collect all Barnsley’s bins safely.

“We’ve continued to receive feedback from the public throughout this period that they’d like us to restart green bins, and we’ve been working hard to organise this.

“I’m delighted we’re now able to resume this service and I’d like to warmly thank all the staff who have been working hard to maintain services as fully as possible throughout this incredibly difficult period, and I’d also thank the people of Barnsley who have been extremely patient.”
