POOR weather conditions have forced the district council to suspend today’s waste and recycling service in East Cambridgeshire.
The suspension mostly affects residents in areas around Newmarket, Sutton, Haddenham, Aldreth, Grunty Fen, Earith Bridge, Stretham, Wilburton, Chittering, Witchford, Isleham and Wentworth.
Depending on the weather, East Cambridgeshire District Council, says crews will look to collect black bags and recycling tomorrow.
If weather conditions do not improve then the waste and recycling which has not been collected will be picked up on the next due collection day.
The latest updates on the waste and recycling service will be available via www.eastcambs.gov.uk or by calling 01353 665555.

Elsewhere, all other council services are open and members of the parks and open spaces team are currently gritting the main paths from the council’s off street car parks into Ely city centre.
Liz Knox, head of environment services, said: “We apologise for the suspension of the waste and recycling service in East Cambridgeshire today. While main roads are passable with care unfortunately many estates which the crews would visit today are not due to the snow and ice.
