A592 closures to affect waste collections near Ullswater in coming weeks

Local residents are being reminded that road closures on the A592 near Ullswater are in place until Friday 17 February 2023, and as a result, waste collections are taking place earlier than usual in the morning.

To avoid missing a blue bag and bag and box collection on the A592 - from Slapestones roundabout towards Lake Ullswater and in the Lake Ullswater area - residents are being asked to set refuse and recycling out by 5am on the scheduled collection day.

Eden District Council’s general waste and recycling contractors will endeavour to undertake collections on the normal scheduled days. However, these collections will often take place earlier in the day to avoid day-time road closures on planned routes.

A spokesperson for Eden District Council said, “Our main message is that collections will still take place on the normal day, but that the contractors will be setting out much earlier than normal.

“As a result we’re asking everyone to have waste and recycling out for 5.30am wherever they are, to make sure it is not missed.”

All residents affected by the roadworks should have already received a letter from the contractors working on the road to notify them of the works. Eden District Council has also been consulting with parish councils in the affected areas, to help minimise disruption for residents.

Any residents who miss a collection can report it through the Council’s website or through their My Account page. For more information visit: www.eden.gov.uk/report.

Cumbria County Council is the local authority in charge of road closures. For more information about roadworks in your area, visit Cumbria roadworks.
